Growing Old Together

roosterhen“I must be getting old”
said the hen to the rooster.

“No, your not old yet”
said the rooster to the hen.

“But I’m falling apart”
said the hen to the rooster.

“I hadn’t noticed”
said the rooster to the hen;

“You’re still the same hen
been pecking on me

and picking on me too
while I sit here next to you.”

“You’re wing looks decrepit”
said the hen to the rooster.

“I think you’re getting old too.”
