Theme: Senility

Senior Student

Senescence...don’t know what that word means,
I forget so many words nowadays.
A man called Alexander has stopped writing,says
he forgetsdates and names of famous persons
but isn’t that what Wikipedia is for?
 
Senescence...old age, I read, better than senile which
is a word full of ancient dust, of knowledge chipped off
an old statue, like the one I saw in Rome.

Time had made his face featureless and he had lost
six fingers. Senior citizen me? I still have nine fingers.
