the big five-o

Always wear thongs when you’re fifty
and let those buttocks bounce
Don’t give a jot ‘bout your wobbly bot
Just flounce that extra ounce
No twin-set and pearls
nor hair in tight curls
just denim and boots
And disguising your roots
Not growing older
Just bigger
And bolder
Keep a smile on your face
And grow old in dis-grace!

    Cool poem Kaye. I always believe that our mind and heart is always suspended somewhere in our lifetime when we feel we own the world never growing old an so for age it's just number something to remind us that our anatomy is not what it use to be but then we are young in our mind and heart if we choose to.

    hahahaha, I'm nearly 55 now, and YES, one's body gets bigger (if they happen to be like me) and that's even after exericse and reducing calories. It SUCKS to get old! LUv, Andrea
