Birthday Girl

So you are the birthday girl?.....Could it be true? And the very thought is making you blue? Well.....what can I possibly say on this day, of all days? some kind of wisdom to comfort and cheer you? As I would recall.... my mom used to say, if you can't say something nice don't say it at all.......! But here's some advice if your mirror has cracked, like a big hunk of ice It might be the sight, you have given it fright! Don't look at it twice!! It will never be nice! So cover the glass, don't show it your *** The ghastly effect, will shatter what's left! If the twinkle is gone.....and a wrinkle surrounds The frown in your brow, where the crow lines have come to roost for awhile just be glad that bees aren't making a hive in that honeybun sag, where your boobs used to hide! If your backside is found on the ground facing south turn your mouth to a smile, just be glad you're alive!! ................................................. For Carolyn's Contest: Birthday, and Aging Humor 5/20/14

It's not funny - aging that is but we can laugh anyway. This one made me laugh. Love, Joyce
