A Vintage Cheese

                                    Beautiful Bugatti found on PreWarCar site           

I am like a vintage cheese

For I am crumbling at the knees

Sad to say there’s more to tell

For there is an abominable smell


Once I was natty like a Bugatti

Now I am wobbly and somewhat tatty

Sad to say there’s more to tell

My mechanical parts don't work too well


Compare me to a Louis 15th Clock

But now I fear that dreadful knock

Sad to say that's not all to tell

I'm just waiting to toll the bell


  1. They say getting old isn't for sissies! In most cases, though, it beats the alternative. What a shame, though, that our list of life options doesn't include "live long but stay young."

  2. Nice car...wouldn't mind a Sunday drive in that around the Hills:)

  3. Do not go gentle into that goodnight,
    old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Dylan got it right!

  4. I know the feeling - waiting for the Rim Greaper...

  5. And ar age 91 with plenty of ailments, I know it better than well! (Is that a play on words?)

  6. Hmmmmmmm, you will always be a Bugatti to me :-)

  7. Bless you. Take the age number away and put your own age on yourself - It might be younger! :)
