The Reluctant Neophyte

The Reluctant Neophyte

I’m too old to be a neophyte. There’s nothing left to do.
So please do not suggest that I do anything that’s new.
Don’t want to go to parties with folks too erudite.
Safaris do not tempt me. I hear those lions bite.

Bungee jumping? Please. No thanks to fun at such a height.
Aerial adventures I’ll leave to Wilbur Wright.
Wild evening adventures simply do not excite.

I’ll skip the latest dance craze. I don’t go out at night.

I’ll never take up kick boxing for fighting’s not my sport.
I’ll say the same for pickle ball. I’m not the tennis sort.
In short, I have done everything that I could find exciting.
It simply is too late for me to do my neophyting!

The prompt word today is neophyte.

    Oh my God, Judy! Did you really write this after seeing today’s prompt word? Or is it an old post that you just put up?…. Not that it’s impossible that you wrote this today, I’m just left in awe. The rhymes and the message correlates… I don’t know, Judy. This post is amazing, if you ask me. Reminds me of one of my Uncles ๐Ÿ˜‚

      Yes.. wrote it this morning. I usually do but recently have been trying to get a book together so seized the opportunity to edit old poems. I always note if it is not a poem written that day, though. So yes, the neophyte poem is new. Thanks for commenting.

        Oh… I misunderstood. Sheesh. I thought you meant it reminded you of one of your uncle’s poems!! You meant the poem sounded like your uncle. All clear now… ha.
