The psalmist says '3 score years and 10'
Youth says 'Live Forever, I Wanna'
Age says 'I'll go when I'm ready' When?

2 WPOs shot in Manchester
Aged late 20s one
Early thirties the other
Never knew mid-life crisis
And menopause would never come
Forever to remain as Isis

Shakespeare at my age
Had written all his plays
Where is the wisdom of the sage?
