SHINER
By Sir Michael Carlisle
Michael fell over while sledging and now has a bruise on his nose. This prompts him to reflect on the limitations of old age. When you're young you think even somone of fifty is over the hill. Then suddenly you're categorised as old. But he refuses to be lumped together with any old people. He sums his philosophy up in a little poem.
