Old Age Whispers Rather Than Screams

Wrinkles form slowly around the eyes
A decree of whereas this and whereas that beams
Old age whispers rather than screams
Signed by envoys of teams
Unripe fellows who first sought the prize
Old age whispers rather than screams
Wrinkles form slowly around the eyes.
