Old goat

Old goat
the youngster contemplating the women in his life
and said there must be one perfect to be my wife
in higher ed he looked around for years and never found
one who met his yearning to make his love abound
traveling the world to ports far and some very near
he searched for the perfect match to be his dear
and out of desperation he married one with talents good
who shared his bed and bore his children did what she should
then as his eighth decade came creeping down life.s road
He looked up from his hospital bed and there she stood
the one straight out of his life fantasies in all her glory
so you probably think this is the happy ending of his story
but nay...she was half his age, married to her life dreamboat
sometimes life is strange and your last breath gets your goat
