Turning 21

“Turning 21″
You know you’re getting older when
You’re turning twenty-one.
Here’s one result:
You’re an adult.
You’re in a state
To celebrate.
You go to bars
With legal card.
You use your skills.
to pay your bills.
And don’t relax,
Your work is taxed.
And one more note,
You have the vote.
It’s all brand new,
That much is true.
You know you’re getting older when
You’re turning twenty-one.
