My word you do look queer

You’re ninety two, well blow me down I never would have guessed You look so young and sprightly And seem so full of zest You’ve got your hair, its all your own Your teeth are yours, not false The way you talk, it’s obvious Your mind’s intact, of course What’s that you say, I’m sorry Sometimes I can’t quite hear It’s fifty two, not ninety My word you do look ***** © John W Fenn 22-05-2009

Congratulations, John, Fenn, on having your well-written fun poem featured this week. It was delightful to read. My grandmother lived to be 99 and still had great wit and many of her own teeth. SMILING!!! Thanks for sharing and keep writing. Lovingly, Dane
