Wisdom Silenced

Truly something to ponder, a timely meditation for the baby boomers among us.
Pronouns indicate this features the more multi-task oriented females among us. Pity the poor male with only the ability to focus on one thing at a time. Confusion multiplies.
For lovers of poetry, this is food for thought; my boss is one of them and I wanted to call this to her attention.
This is a selection I will offer participants in a discussion group that studies poetry in the context of English as a Foreign Language. Each of the first three sections describes a horror that seniors might face. It will be interesting in my cross-cultural context classroom to get participant reactions.
I’ll give them the fourth section which deals less with the individual, she is resigned. It shifts focus to society’s regret.
A super serious piece of contemplation for a care-free Friday.
