Do it while you’re young! they tell me.
Do it while your joints are springy
Do it while your voice projects
Do it while you’re young
So that you won’t regret
Do it while the trees are lucent
Sun high, gazillion watts
Do it while you can afford
to forget to remember
and repulse those blackened thoughts
Do it while doing it is the thing to do
Do it while what you’re doing still feels
Do it while you have money
Do it if you don’t
Do it just because doing it is better than
I’ve been told by nomads and suits alike
Do it while you’re young!
Oh I’ll do it, I told them
I’ll do it for life.
