The Terrible Truth, Paul Kindlon [2023:41]

Nobody really cares, but if some young soul were to ask me—
now that I’m 80—what’s the worst thing about old age
I think I’d tell them the truth
I have a right to after all
The kid says…
Cognitive decline?
For sure
Physical decline?
You have no idea
Can’t party anymore?
Don’t remind me
Jesus Christ Gramps, then what is it?
Well…I miss my friends
but not being able to eat anything I want, anytime
is like being in hell already
