At cock crow 
Lady and Mr. Y, turned seventy
They googled themselves;
The wind whistled past
And exposed the gooses back
They felt the wrinkles 
On their temple,
The rings around their eyes
And the tires around their waistline;
They threw caution to the wind,
Damned God's wisdom;
Rejected and refused the notion
That every product 
Has a manufacture and expiration date

Like Adam and Eve,
They rebelled and went 
On a rehabilitation and refurbishing spree:
First, was a tummy tuck, Liposuction,
Rhinoplasty and facelift,
Necklift, browlift, chinlift, breastlift 
And facial rejuvenation.....
For a while,
They shortchanged nature
As a snake shells it's outer layer
Could not cheat death
When it came knocking.
