I’ll need you when I’m fifty
Just as much as I did at fifteen
Whether times are good or bad
You are always there

We’ll be a techie 50’s generation
The knowledge gap will be narrower
Our kids can’t make fools of us
Like we so easily did to naive mum and dad

As hard as we try, we’ll still look
Confused at their humour
Exhausted with their temper
Just like our parents looked at us

We’re going to need the energy
To whine and laugh like we do
Because I’m going to need you
To sanely make it to fifty

Daily Prompt- Fifty
