fight the good fight

what's next
now that's a very good question
no one beating down my door
they want me
they just don't know it yet
I am 50 now
and it's a fact
once you reach a certain age
they'd lead you to believe
you are yesterday's news
your best years behind you
you must learn to be content
with the scraps they throw you
looks like they don't really know you
far too soon to roll over and die
not at least while
you've got enough fight
left in you
to fight the good fight
