MY GENERATION– Hope I die before I get old

.
That was one of the Mantras of us Baby Boomers.

.
I missed out on the 27 Club. Didn’t take enough drugs. Did try Lapsong Suchong once but didn’t like it much. I like a bit of Earl Grey though.

.
Now Lady 70 is beckoning to me.

.
Behind her stands that Old Witch 75… 80…. 90… a long line of cruel dark zombies lurking in the shadows.

.
I’ve been caring for an over-90 elderly ancestor. Got me musing about life, death, what’s the point of it all?

.
That World War Two Generation – a tough heroic lot. Lived dangerous and loved fast.
Yet to MY GENERATION they were always boring old farts who didn’t know how to live or enjoy themselves. Content to serve their kids, work hard, and watch telly. That was it!

.
Me I’m PROUD TO BE A HEDONIST. It’s difficult to swim against the tide ‘A Rebours’ in a world where Hard Working Families are offered by politicos as the final end of human achievement.

.
WAIT A MINUTE!!

.
Isn’t that the same old crap that my ancestors fell for, plus their forebears, and so on and so on…down the ages?

.
You know what – the vast majority of people are brainwashed into SLAVE MENTALITY.
This means that the affected elderly collude in their own decline in their quiet desperation. Thinking of themselves, and becoming, useless, hopeless Zombies with no purpose in life.

.
MY GENERATION can help them a little. I can become a sort of Son King just for one, or several days. Heroically putting aside my Hedonistic Hinstincts. Tenderly caring? Not really Me is it?

.
I’ve got to break free!
Before the Zombies get me!

.
Live and grow old usefully, pleasurably, and of course – disgracefully.

.
I AIN’T NEVER GONNA F-F-F-FADE AWAY !!!
