Alas my story's

Older than yours surely

Yet no skeletons in my closet to oust

It's oft been said

I've one hollow leg

But more often than not I am soused

Thus you should know

A degenerate au

Contraire this beast 'tis but barely

Aim for the stars

That enemy of ours

Self-absorbed I am known not unfairly

And still with me

On my own I will be

Nevertheless forever unnerving

So tell me somehow

What am I now

A freeloader that's truly deserving?

A sea sponge? Catches the "self-absorbing". I donno about hollow leg, though. I also don't know the anatomy of a sea sponge. I'll go check.

EDIT: I like sponges.

Right on - well done mo ma and mo

Alas my story's

Older than yours surely - a prehistoric creature

Yet no skeletons in my closet to oust - soft tissue/no bony skeleton

It's oft been said

I've one hollow leg - body is hollow and attached to some surface

But more often than not I am soused - not necessarily drunk but soaking wet

Thus you should know

A degenerate au - not de- but re- generate

Contraire this beast 'tis but barely - one of the simplest forms of animals

Aim for the stars

That enemy of ours - starfish are predators

Self-absorbed I am known not unfairly - indeed

And still with me

On my own I will be - immobile without external forces

Nevertheless forever unnerving - no central nervous system

So tell me somehow

What am I now

A freeloader that's truly deserving? - maybe a little double double entendre

Arrrrggghhhhh! That was one of my guesses on hold but I opted for the bug first. Good riddle.
