Farewell speech

He makes his fine farewell speech
As effervescent as antacid bubbles.
Not superannuated , he just jokes,

But is superannuating, as ladies do
That time of the month every time.
Years or ears ? Excuse , I can’t hear,

Like old man Lear of Shakespeare
In a weather-beaten coat and cap,
Monkeying at the lazily rising sun.
