Getting old doesn’t make you wise
Some don’t read, I’m sorry to say
Getting old, I started to analyze
Watching T V for advice is a wasted day
We don’t have too many years
When our hair turns from red to white,
Isn’t that all peoples blight?
There are elders that don’t read
It is clear, no TV they, say no need
Yet Knowledge comes from no greed
Why, I ask, do I have to heed?
Why, makes us able to be so smart
Can we ever be as smart, even in part?
The elders tell me I never went to school
I looked around and noticed everything
It was not more than an awakening
Too many people go through life asleep
How can we be as amazing as you?
Never follow the sheep, they say it’s true
I do read books and watch TV too
Watching TV when you’re feeling blue
Only rots your brain some people argue
I don’t believe that, thinking doesn’t happen
If you do with no conversation, who knew?
Listening to people on TV that are crazy
Watch it for real news, not just opinions
Opinions are like a condition that is hazy
Do I do believe that I finally went crazy?
