Half a century, how long it sounds.
A wealth of knowledge,
a treasure cove of experience.
Yet unspoken mindsets.
Unthought of for opportunities
for one should have gotten them already.
Unthought of for awards
for one should be adorned enough of the one.
Unthought of as game changers,
for what game can one change after half a century?
With Skillsfuture opportunities and other such chances,
new horizons open, training programmes available.
Yet minds must open too,
Or there be no real change.
Unite, brothers and sisters of half a century or more!
Learn, open the door to new horizons,
Plug in and up our skills!
Keep active, and keep dementia at bay!
