If not today, then when?

Mister Macho,
I’m not after your attention,
nor will I give you mine.
Don’t mistake me for a doormat.
I know about theatrics,
and I have a long fuse.
Attack my kin or my friend,
and I will call you out.
It’s not bravado.
Just old age that doesn’t care no more.
Throw that punch.
You’ll likely kill me.
There are worse ways to go.
