Football Kickin’ Granny
When I am old, I will certainly wear purple.
For I wear purple now.
I won’t wait for permission or the scent of senility
To do whatever, WHATEVER I want.
I won’t wait until I’m old (well older) to wear hats
and buy sequined dresses
and invent wildly inappropriate places to wear them.
I pay the mortgage and the light bill, yes.
But I also buy tiaras, and declare myself princess of the known universe
Because it is Tuesday.
I do that now.
When I am offered a sample, I taste it. When I see a ball, I kick it.
I will not wait to devour my life.
For tomorrow is not promised to any of us.
But should I be blessed with old (well older) age, I hope I will also
Be blessed with the desire and the ability to continue
My purple wearing, sample tasting, football kicking ways.
May I continue to kick butt and take names.
May I be the one that feisty is named for.
But Lord in heaven, don’t ask me to wait until I’m old.
Let me tear it up, let me embarrass my children,
Let me paint the town red.
