The Petit Vieux Analysis



Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 1

"Sow your wild oats in your youth," so we're always told;

But I say with deeper sooth: "Sow them when you're old."

I'll be wise till I'm about seventy or so:

Then, by Gad! I'll blossom out as an ancient beau.

I'll assume a dashing air, laugh with loud Ha! ha! . . .

How my grandchildren will stare at their grandpapa!

Their perfection aureoled I will scandalize:

Won't I be a hoary old sinner in their eyes!



Watch me, how I'll learn to chaff barmaids in a bar;

Scotches daily, gayly quaff, puff a fierce cigar.

I will haunt the Tango teas, at the stage-door stand;

Wait for Dolly Dimpleknees, bouquet in my hand.



Then at seventy I'll take flutters at roulette;

While at eighty hope I'll make good at poker yet;

And in fashionable togs to the races go,

Gayest of the gay old dogs, ninety years or so.



"Sow your wild oats while you're young," that's what you are told;

Don't believe the foolish tongue -- sow 'em when you're old.

Till you're threescore years and ten, take my humble tip,

Sow your nice tame oats and then . . . Hi, boys! Let 'er rip.
