    • POEM: Warning by Jenny Joseph (5/27/2006 3:45:00 AM)

      I was sent this poem by a female colleague at work, after I had said to her that when I retire I'm going to grow my hair long again like it was in the 70's and ride around on a Harley, because I can.

      It's so difficult to explain, but Jenny Joseph spoke to me and I replied 'Yes, yes, that's right. That's exactly it.' The actual words she uses, whilst helpful in creating an image we can all relate to, do not seem totally important in conveying the wider message. Wearing a red hat or spitting on a regular basis is not what is being suggested, it is the act of doing something which is so different from established practice - the thrill of doing something which is perhaps bizarre or even a little naughty, but something you can 'get away with' as you grow old.
