A Fools Remorse


When your 8 or 9 you hope they not think you a fool
When your 14 or 16 you hope they think your cool at the pool and don't see you drool
When your 20 or 30 you play your jewel for a fool
When your 40 or 50 you become a tool and claim to rule
When your 60 or 70 your stubborn and cruel
When your 70 or 80 you hope they not think you a fool, when you wake-up in your own drool
When your 80 or 90, guess whose there to wipe off your drool
You might have been cool, but now whose the fool
You should not have forgotten the old golden rule
