My wife complains that my hearing is going
She gets tired of me saying "huh" all the time

I more or less fall into a chair when I sit down
And it takes some grunting to rise from there.

I have a persistent pain in my left hip 
I walk with a sort of rolling hopalong gait

I forget things
Hell I've always forgotten things
 
But
Dammit!
I can still see as good as ever

Hey! Robot man!, How 'bout I prove I'm not a robot by coming over to your house and punching you in the nose (if you have a nose, that is)

Well having eyes is better anyway right! Very nice happy poem, and as far as the hearing goes, maybe it;s just selective hearing !Ha! Ha!

Hallo, Lane!
See "Miracle Ear" for a free test to learn if you REALLY have a hearing problem. They were a GREAT help to me.
Tschüß,
