Juvenescence

This post was written in 5 minutes.
About a man and the glorified concept of anti-aging which our culture has so willingly embraced.

The white hair shaking silently in the wind
uncontrolled......................malicious,
where happiness sees no door


The light splattered on the boxes inoculate
aesthetic..................beauty,
where grey hair sees no more


The coloured boards, alluring the aged
promoting youth.................promoting joy...............promoting life
one then sees veterans across the shop's floor



The money is then gone and science borne
upon the once elderly
now he walks out

no longer old

no longer sad

But youth and joy decline to show
for money retreats not time
and if no longer aged...............no longer distressed,
or young or happy

then I ask,
what has the old man become?
