Old Age and Revenge
by Jan Oscar Hansen
Bookmark and Share
  Woke up one morning distressed….I was forty,
end of youth, no way to stretch it any further.
I didn´t go to work on that day, began drinking
at eleven, thought of face lift and new hair,
the day became lopsided and I woke up next
morning in a woman´s bed, I don´t think
anything untoward happened because she had
union-jack knickers on, served me hot tea.

I woke up one morning distressed… I was sixty
knew at last I was an adult, so much so I went to
work that day, at the office they gave me cakes
and joked about my age. The boss gave me
a watch, which I think he had bought at a jumble
sale and a fortnight later he fired me.

I woke up one morning….happy, I was seventy and
my former boss had died.
