The Centenarian Analysis



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

Great Grandfather was ninety-nine

     And so it was our one dread,

That though his health was superfine

     He'd fail to make the hundred.

Though he was not a rolling stone

     No moss he seemed to gather:

A patriarch of brawn and bone

               Was Great Grandfather.



He should have been senile and frail

     Instead of hale and hearty;

But no, he loved a mug of ale,

     A boisterous old party.

'As frisky as a cold,' said he,

     'A man's allotted span

I've lived but now I plan to be

               A Centenarian.'



Then one night when I called on him

     Oh what a change I saw!

His head was bowed, his eye was dim,

     Down-fallen was his jaw.

Said he: 'Leave me to die, I pray;

     I'm no more bloody use . . .

For in my mouth I found today--

               A tooth that's loose.'
