The advantages of growing old?

This was prompted by a friends distress at her parents lack of care when ill.

As the years advance
I have taken this chance
To review what I’m told
“There are advantages to growing old”.

I have been objective
And not selective
Tried to ignore
The fact that we’re poor

The mirrors are banned
In my corner of the land
To help the belief
That age is a relief.

I use a bus pass
To save on car gas
Continually hope
I can always cope

Spend my days
Worrying about ways
I can avoid being alone
Or in an Old Peoples home.

Are these really the advantages of growing old?
