I'm Fine

There's nothing the matter with me
I'm just as healthy as can be.

I have arthritis in both knees
And when I speak, I speak with a wheeze.

My pulse is slow and my blood is thin
But I'm really well for the shape I'm in.

Old age is great, so I've heard it said,
But at times I wonder as I fall into bed.

My ears are in a drawer and my teeth in a cup
My eyes are on the table until I get up.

I get up each morning, dust off my wits,
Pick up the paper and read the "obits."

If mine is missing, I know I'm not dead,
So I eat a good breakfast and crawl back into bed.
