Well, on March 4, 2004 I turned 17.  We have a tradition at my church to write a poem and read in in front of the congregation once we're another year older.  Now that I'm officially over the hill, I wrote this poem:
I'm So Old!
I turned 17 last week.
I can feel arthritis setting in.
I fear that it's retreating,
And I also need to watch my weight
And stop my excessive eating.
So now I'm among the old people,
But I must go take my pills,
And then I think I'll take a nap,
Now that I'm over the hill.
