Instructions To A Fifty Year Old

How do you act at age fifty,

No longer spritely, or nifty,

Back pain, can’t stand upright,

Buggered up near eyesight,

Memory not as sharp no,

Brain striking, on go slow,

Memory not as sharp no,

Brain striking, on go slow,

Smiles, frowns remain on face,

Wrinkles, smooth skin replace,

Dowdy clothing for the day,

Miniskirts, thongs put away,

Hair mutinous, color none,

Sprouting in places, one by one,

Knitting into the background,

Where the comfort zone is found…

Um…

I say stuff that, let’s change the world,

With magic spells, hair orange curled,

Show off your moves, disco dancing,

No retreating, just advancing,

Wear your body as you fancy,

Spandex, leather, shorts, or pantsy,

Be visible, no withering allowed,

Let yourselves wow, be wowed,

Have no shame, say what you mean,

Leave embarrassment, it’s obscene,

Tens, twenties, thirties, forties, follow me,

Let’s show respect to the new boss, she’s fifty.
