Ode to Youth Wasted

“Youth is wasted on the young”
Don’t believe that horse dung!
My younger self wasted every day
Frittering my time and love away
Stealing kisses from the pretty
Making mistakes naïve and petty
I tell you now the absolute truth
This is the very purpose of youth
I will never for a second repent
A wanton second I misspent
As for wishing you were young again
There is no worse way your time to spend
Putting in kid bodies adult mind sets
Would spoil their childish kindness
The last thing people need
Is jaded adults in their greed
Grown ups and their ways untruthful
Trying to ruin things youthful
There could be no greater fatality
Then if we discover immortality
