“Oy Vey” is Something I Often Say

Share our stories on social media:

I see the docs more than my friends
Many early reaching their ends

I’m just trying to keep aging at bay
Oy vey is something I often say

Does this ever happen to you?
Getting down’s followed by, “Whew!”

Getting up’s preceded by a grunt
This simple action is now a stunt

Isn’t aging a natural thing?
Oh, why must it be so tiring?

Getting here has been a chore
It’s tough to be a dinosaur

How come when one slows down
Life speeds up all around?

Wasn’t I young just yesterday?
There are other words I could say

Mother taught me not to use them
But she’s not here… so there!
