Should I? by Gary Pacernick

Should I or should I notDSC_3136.JPG

have a cortisone shot

for my painful left arm and shoulder?

Such are the questions as I grow older.

Whether to take daily doses of insulin

or exercise, diet, and try to stay thin?

Should I save and invest money

or spend it on booze and a brand new honey?

Is the face I see in the mirror

a reflection of what I fear?

Time does not stand still,

and I am fast going downhill.

Should I follow Jewish burial tradition

or save a few bucks and go with cremation?
