for Bert and Ethel it was love at first sight
he tall and handsome, she a lil cute gal

those close didn’t think it was right
at their age it just wasn’t right

yet Bert was her shining knight
her true delight Ethel determined to fight

Bert wouldn’t let Ethel out of his sight
she his leading light, they fitted just right

but this is often the plight
of seniors in their twilight

others dictate what they do, what’s alright
fear their inheritance might become slight

self-interest tends to outweigh support
of those who reared us, spoilsport!
