Older generation expired at +/- 80,
But my life: easier, more resiliency.
Just after 70, long respiratory flu,
Painful knees, friends facing crises.
Looking down the road to retirement,
Fuller freedom, more frequent recreation.
Looking further, will money, energy, and mind last?
Who will need me/feed me * when I'm really old?
