The Age Gap

Dedicated to Ashton Cox

What is this disparity of age and youth
When will we all realize the truth
Age enhances wisdom
Age embraces maturity
Age nurtures immortality

Take a good red wine
Take expensive French champagne
Take mankind and his immortal soul
Then you may realize your Earthly role

At birth, you are computer chip free
Bar-coded, not yet a rocket scientist to be
A shell willing to learn and understand
At this point, you have life in your hand

After death, you are primed with knowledge and more
While through the Universe you soar
To be a child once more!
