Although I vowed it wouldn’t happen,
Age is creeping up on me.
All my friends are now great-grandmas.
I don’t know how that can be.
My beautician and I decided
To stop coloring my hair.
We had both of us forgotten
What shade was hiding under there.
Imagine her excitement
And indeed my great dismay
That what ever hue had been there
Had completely gone away.
Now my friends are sympathetic.
They think I must have had a fright,
And it was so terrifying
It turned my hair white over night.
