Canto CXLIX

I sometimes count the grey hairs in my beard,
excited, like a youthful silverback,
though it may turn sour in future years,

searching all day for one slither of black.

    Sometimes I look in the mirror at my grey hairs and think…old git.
    Then I look at most of the geezers with whom I work and think… bald old gits.
