|old age sticks
youth yanks them
What is a hypocrite?
Why might he separate words like
gr-owing and forbid-den and tres-pas-sing?
Why does he stop the title (and first line) after "
sticks" rather than after "signs"?
Ditto with "youth yanks them--down"?
What is ironic about the last line/stanza?
What is he trying to say with this poem?
