Behold old is gold:

When being young is all the rage
Nation has reached historic stage
By electing eminent sage
Leader ninety two years of age

Age is sometimes a positive
Youth is not always elixir
With wisdom accumulative
For Prime Minister Mahathir

Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
“If you haven’t made it by a hundred, you will never make it” A salute to age and wisdom and hope for those aspiring to make it before reaching the century mark.
Editing stage: 


and a well merited indeed.
Wisdom he has and all!


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words
........Robert Frost☺

and thanks also goes to eminent statesmen like Mr. Mahathir who has been and continues to be an inspiration for countless persons. We desperately need mature leaders of wisdom when we have terrible temperamental thugs pushing to pulverize the planet with their belligerent and bellicose blather and mindless mayhem and murder.
