~ Ripe, Cured, Aged, Mature ~

The apples are aripnin,
And Fall is feelin good,
We’ve all been cheatin on diets,
Not eating what we should.

Apples to the rescue,
Round and red and ready,
To cure of us our daily ills,
I think that’s kind of heady.

One little fruit, with such a rep,
Will cure all ills, then fill a pie,
A cobbler or cider with cinnamon
Eaten or sipped, steam in your eye.

Now an aged apple with many friends,
Might make a glass of wine,
If you’re mature, better just one,
Stay alive, sleep well, in your prime.

~ Ripe, Cured, Aged, Mature ~

People say I'm old
I say I'm just mature
Maybe I am aged
But I am secure

But do I really care?
I am not bothered
I pay my own way
Not yet on welfare

My tempers cured with age
I don't worry too much
I am getting overweight
For I have a stomach pouch

I have reached a ripe age
For I was born in early forties
I do live life to the full
and I don't have many worries

The Fruit tree was loaded and figs ripe for picking. The mature thing for him to do was to get a ladder and harvest the fig crop before the birds got them all. So he got a bucket, climbed up the ladder and started picking the fruit. He realized that his aged legs should not be up on a ladder when they started shaking and he fell to the ground. This forever cured him of climbing ladders. From that moment on, he hired a younger person to do anything that required climbing a ladder. However, a teenage boy across the road, got great mileage from posting a video of the old man's fall, on UTube.
