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
