the big five-o

Always wear thongs when you’re fifty and let those buttocks bounce Don’t give a jot ‘bout your wobbly bot Just flounce that extra ounce No twin-set and pearls nor hair in tight curls just denim and boots And disguising your roots Not growing older Just bigger And bolder Keep a smile on your face And grow old in dis-grace!

Cool poem Kaye. I always believe that our mind and heart is always suspended somewhere in our lifetime when we feel we own the world never growing old an so for age it's just number something to remind us that our anatomy is not what it use to be but then we are young in our mind and heart if we choose to.
