look at how young I have become
restless feet run a marathon long
on a mad dash, off track enough
wandering eyes will water somewhat.

now it's round two and one will lose
we shall soon see who makes a next move
combinations you won't expect
give it the old hook right one left two three

and it begins
and their chomping at the bit
just to be the beast who wins
hard to tell just what that is

pity the foolish my oh me
when my old friends and family tree leaves
easily blown so far from home
lord only knows what seeds are sewn grow
taller each year and deeper here
cheers to the root when flowers appear
fashion an axe the handle cut
from the same wood split with an edge of

history the same
cause a familiar refrain
growing old a family trait
handed down the human race

and in no time flat, that change exact
seconds are stacked and there you have it.
