Subject: Willie Nelson at 75......

Whether or not you are a country music
fan, these are truly the words of a deep thinker,
and a highly intelligent person.
So simple, yet so profound! Read the words of
wisdom from that famous philosopher Willie
Nelson, iconic country and western singer,
on his 75th birthday.
Only a man with such wisdom and maturity could be
so concise and succinct in phrasing his feelings at
this turning point in his life.

"I have outlived my pecker."
A Poem--by Willie Nelson

My nookie days are over,

My pilot light is out.

What used to be my pride and joy,

Is now my water spout.

Time was when, on its own accord,

From my trousers it would spring.

But now I've got a full time job,

Just to find the damned thing.

It used to be embarrassing,

The way it would behave.

For every single morning,

It would stand and watch me shave.

Now as old age approaches,

It sure gives me the blues.

To see it hang its little head,

And watch me tie my shoes !
