thats what happens as you get older
things start to sag some
some things more than others
it stops at the top with the eyes
the just moves south

it seems to start with the color change of your hair
it turns grey
things start to sag

since retired i have developed this slight
baby bump
no im not pregnant and due anytime

i have these old sweat pants i wear
that i tie up along the new baby bump
the string must be stretchy now
the day goes on the tightness of the string
like some of the body parts
get looser and looser
next thing i know
i start to sag
then sag more
and more

usually i just pull the sweat pants back up
and retie them
but the other day i decided to let them sag and sag
to see what sagging would feel like

they dropped down lower and lower
down to where a plumber might wear theirs when they
stoop over

i found as it got lower and lower
if i developed a wide based walk that by extending out
my upper legs i could keep the pants in place
eventually i lost the battle
as the pants slid up over the baby bump
down the peak of the hill
the fall just seem to pick up speed
my gait got wider
i wiggled more
you know like when you have to go real bad
all that seemed to help
bam they went down to my knees

i was outside going to my garden
i guess it was that down hill incline that did that final
push to get them on down to my ankles
good thing i live in the country huh

all this made me think
how can those guys those kids walk around sagging like this
all the time
heck ive seen kids playing basketball sagging way down
below their butts
i cant even walk well hardly walk when mine gets that low

sagging doesnt really bother me if the kids do it
as long as i dont see things i dont want to see
if they dont wear white tighty undies
if they wear a nonholey pair of boxer undies

i worry more about what kind of kid they are
do they do well in school
important things like that

of course
when i sagged
i didnt meet all that criteria

think ill just stick with the age related sagging from now on
it comes on naturally
