Golf Bones

Golf Bones
Picture Credits: http://


Aged and unannealed bones
Heretofore doing so fine
You were made with ice cream cones
And a ripened banana vine.

With body adorned by dents and scrapes
Who ever thought you’d endure?
Turn to impervious gives and takes
That we know will never take cure.

Maintain the same swing they say
Old bones seem to get in the way
Which ones depend on the day
Tomorrow I know that I'll pay.

I really love this game, bones of mine
There's no better time to make it shine.
For if I am ever to shoot my age

What I need is you, a heart and courage.

I really enjoyed this poem about golf. It does seem as we get older that the game is a little harder to endure as the bones creek and squeak! I wish I could shoot my age!! Bravo to you if you can do it! How about a hole-in-one! Wouldn't that be nice? Very good poem! I truly enjoyed it. Keep it up!

Golf Bones.
Comparing your health to a game of golf must be easy for you, so I assume your game of golf must be okay despite the aches and pains of aging.
Have a good day (of golf of course).

Golf Bones.
I like your picture, it's funny.
I don't golf but it really looks like your having fun writing this poem despite the aches and pains within the lines.
Good luck with your game!

Gulf bones take a beating and with the love of the game, is it worth it? I guess it comes to a stand of what you love best, and how well you love your bones. One needs their bones to get around. The poem makes a statement and the choice has to be a termination of intelligence and will power. Good point. Mae
