Age with Pride

Sunset of our lives
Age with pride

When you get older - mind and body plays a game
To keep forgetting things and others you blame
Fat stays much longer and if that isn’t enough!
Your hair changes colour and turns into fluff!

Your eyes 👀 go all cloudy can’t see like you did
You say hello to strangers,j the dust is now hid
lips disappear now impossible to pout 👄
Arthritis and cataracts not to mention the gout

A shiny new hip or a new pair of knees
The fun really starts when you cough or sneeze!
Getting down on the floor - can be easily done
Getting back up is when it’s really fun!

Eye lashes eyebrows becoming quite sparse
Luscious thick hair a thing of the past!
Teeth that were Once fixed gleaming and white
Now in a glass by my bed, at night

Things going downhill this is quite plain
gnarly feet and varicose veins
Body all covered with blemishes and warts
This is me now? Who’d of thought!

Feel like a boat left too long under water
Barnacles appearing in every crease and corner
Bristles sprouting right on me chin
What sort of sick game are we’re playing in?

Aches and pains moans and groans
Can’t hear anybody on the phone
Food more important than romance or lust
A sleep in the afternoon now always a must

Even as the pearly gates are nearing
We thought it fun to take away your hearing
Make jobs that were easy to now really hard
I’ve more fun for you so be on your guard!

You merge into this new phrase of life
Either that or, go under the knife?
Fit into your body with joy and pride
Be happy You’re here, You haven’t yet died! May 2020
