Peter Pan Staring Forty In The Face

If it wasn’t for the bathroom mirror

he would never know how old he was

and the back pain

sure you can slide into home at forty like you could at twenty

but one day later

will remind you of the twenty years that have passed

and how you were out at the plate anyway

and you can lose track of time but time doesn’t lose track of you

and you score less

and you lose more

and your only hope in winning

is scoring life on who loses more wins

cause you gotta live long enough to lose this much

so, victory for you, old man.
