Over 50’s Lament

Over 50
Do you fight with a face-cream
That doesn’t transform you?
Do you rake through your hair when it doesn’t perform?
Do your tights not contain all your pillows and bulges?
Are you trying to compete with the Hollywood norm?
Are your face-lines more hound-dog than sexy senora?
Do your thighs wibble wobble when they should stand firm?
Does your neck concertina unless it’s scarf-hidden?
Are you channeling quinoa or maybe wheatgerm?
But hey! Let’s be real as we cross our half-way mark
That’s right, to 100 we’re heading, they say
If this is Day One of our second-half lifetime
Get dancing! Those wibbles look good when they sway!
