I'M A 8

A year has passed I’m looking so much older Bottom is huge and my boobies have gone south Got an aching back and pain in my shoulder Need anti ageing cream for lines round my mouth Have to wear glasses and use my hearing aid Now I have dentures, my real teeth have decayed I may dribble some wee when I laugh or sneeze This ageing process it sure isn’t a breeze Form: Rispetto – scheme ababccdd Syllable counter from Poetry Soup used - 11 syllables per line Contest: Tell me your number Sponsor: Andrea Dietrich Birthday 25th January 2 + 5 + 1 = 8 ...my number is 8 ~awarded 2nd place~

Glad to see this rated so well Jan, I still laugh when I read this. What I don't understand is why someone is willing to share so much personal information yet afraid to give us a birth date. I mean we don't think you are 29 with all this happening lol. Congratulations on your wonderful win.

My only gripe was I think you spelled aging wrong. Other than that, this is as good as it gets, girlie!! Cool and funny poem. Congrats on your second place!
