Old Codger

I will not be oldened by your withering looks
Made to feel out-of-date or out-of-style
Out-of-sync with fashion trends
The trappings of being
Voguishly a la mode.

I have seen.
I have lived.
I have known.
Things you'll never understand.

I wear the wrinkles of my brow
With every hair lost, every tear dropped
I've gained
An insight
Another notch of wisdom.
