We go to the pictures

We go to the pictures, my wife and I,

as we did when we were young

and courting.

But we can’t get the roles these days.

She isn’t an ingenue; I am no longer

a young leading man.

Life casts us now as supporting

characters; as delightful old folks;

or as comic relief …

We just can’t play those sexy

roles these days; Life doesn’t return

our calls.
