Man in beret (red) and black and white

    Newer Older

    I'm a bit...
    eastern
    (actually quite a lot eastern)
    when it comes to old people
    in Britain it's now not so PC to call someone 'old'
    And although I would never have dreamed of disrepecting my grandparents
    a cult of youth prefers a more neutral label
    Me?
    I like old as a label and as a condition
    I much prefer the oak to the acorn
    here's a living library of life
    once a young
    and no doubt pretty
    man
    He's earned his respect
    whatever his life story
    not all acorns become oaks
