When She Says Guess My Age

Guess My Age

By Elton Camp

If it’s a woman who asks, there’s no way to win
So I don’t plan to get caught by this one again

If she is really forty but fifty is the guess I told
She is outraged because I think she looks old

If an age younger than hers I happen to name
She will certainly be offended just the same

Her reaction will be, I am unquestionably sure
“It seems that you think I look very immature!”

Daring to guess a woman’s age is a bear trap
Avoid getting caught - don’t open your yap

It’s like attempting a live bomb to defuse
Cut the blue, red or green wire - you choose

    Women can do more than men to hide their age. I'm 72 and look every day of it. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Elton
