Old sofas never die.
Even on streets discarded;
They just look that way.

Nice - they don't die - they just age with constant use - become 'lived in'.

I've noticed more people place their gently used items on the street to be recycled to those in need...a sign of our times. Enjoyed your verse.

Like old soldiers they never die they fade away. They hold on to their dignity even if its usefulness is no more.

Hi Rel! I am still alive and kicking...not sure about the "kicking", but I am still terrorising everyone!

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas. I will try my best to pay visits more often! Cheers!
