Ivor Hogg

No T.V. I'm still alive

Though I was born long years ago.
I am not old in my own eyes
I still have some get up and go
To many others great surprise.
They seem to think that I should be
content to sit in my armchair
and live my life vicariously by
watching T.V. But I don’t care
I try to exercise my brain
by trying something new each day.
Trying my hardest to retain
independence in my own way.
Although I'm frail I'm not brain dead
my body's weaker than my head.
