Geriatrics' rule - OK?

Take heed, you old men,
resist the temptation
to let your heart addle your brain;
if the grand passion didn't work first time around,
it won't if you try it again.

You will find you're expected
to follow a plan
that someone's constructed for you;
but jumping through hoops and fetching a ball
are gestures that most men will rue.

So raise the full glass
and drink to the lees,
the toast is a singular goal;
you may rock in life's gales, you may bend at the knees,
but never surrender your soul.
