OLD AGE IS HELL

Face full of wrinkles, got a second chin Hair is all greying, needs dying again Don't quite remember these curves being there And when did my hips get so big and square Eyesight is failing, hearing bout gone Arms waving bye bye, lost all their tone OMG what happened to my chest What used to point onward now points SE & SW Gravity is not prejudice, it grabs us all What once was so perky has taken a big fall Arther and Rhitis have both moved in Now Bengay and Icyhot are my new best friends They say that the memory is the first thing to go Slowly forgetting all that we know Mother Nature is cruel, this we know well Take it from me, old age is hell.
