Should I or should I not
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?
