Saturday Centus: I'm Not Getting Any Younger

Miss Jenny is stirring things up over on Saturday Centus. This week the rule is 25 words to use with the 5 word prompt (30 words total). Since I'm on my way into work I had to come up with a quick little ditty. I hope this is Jenny-worthy. As always, the prompt is in green.

gray hairs grow longer
old times to ponder
while sipping miralax in morning coffee
I’m not getting any younger
the lost years I hunger
the closer I get to 50!

O.K. ... well put! But stop moaning about 50 .... it'll be great.... it was for me!! Now 70 sounds very strange when I hear myself say it. Afterall, we're just getting better .... now laugh!!

Ah, yes...50 is when your body's accerator pedal gets stuck and time flies like you are on a downhill ramp with no brakes! Good job with 30 words....

I can relate to this poem. I really like the wording, especially "miralax." Not that I like miralax, but I like your use of it.
Cheers.
