SAGA OF THE AGEING ORPHAN

	Father and I
	waved goodbye
	as we went
	to look
	Uncle Peter
	was writing
	a book
	and his mama
	was starting
	to cook
	and she's ageing.
	
	We had come
	in search of one
	who evades us all
	never heeds the call
	if only someone could stall
	this ageing.
	
	So I'll go and hope and know
	that my time is near
	laughing through the years
	having only fears
	of ageing.
