Perpetual Youth

When yer gettin’ long in the tooth
the search for perpetual youth
for most folk it seems
is just a wild dream
They just can’t get away from the truth!

Some people seek gurus on mountains
and have searched in swamplands for fountains
when your spring has sprung
but you want to stay young,
You could use some tricky accountants!

You might spend your whole career
Learning to confront your fears
In an effort to slow
Age’s constant tempo
To reverse the advancement of years.

I realized we can reach our goal
Old age can be controlled!
Your age plus fifteen
Is now what “old” means!
And with that, you’ll never get old!
