I Hope I Die Before I Get Old

A Smalle Ode

O septegenarian lady at the gym today,
Why dost thou walk around naked--
Nay, also moisturize your legs
By hoisting one (certainly a most amazing feat)
On to the vanity counter?

As They Might Be Giants sings:

It's a long, long rope
They used to hang you soon, I hope
And I wonder why this hasn't happened
Why why why?
And I think about the dirt
that I'll be wearing for a shirt
And I hope that I get old before I die.
