AGE-MATES


We are age-mates
We have a lot in common
We grew up together
We got married at the same time
We each have three wives
We each have seven children
Three boys and four girls.

Together we have permeated
Together we have feasted
Together we have sworn
Together we have fought
Together we have wept
But together we have also rejoiced.

Today, aren`t you ashamed?
You stand alone
You stand aloof
And claim you are the lead guitarist
You force us into second fiddle
And grab all the envelopes
You alone, with how many stomachs to eat?
Aren`t you really ashamed?
