Peter Pan and Captain Hook

Getting our toes wet

dipping into that salty sea of old age

wet with worries, not unfounded

Peter Pan and Captain Hook ( that’s me)

and a crocodile with a ticking clock inside.

My mate keeps to his work

but the truth be told, everything takes three times longer.

Perhaps it’s time to go deeper into the sea

where the water, thick with salt

lets us float for free

like turtles, old with time

and free.
