Seems some people are seeking to shun,

The awards their own age has won,

They try to dress like their daughter,

Vainly hoping to “be her sister,”

Or try to play like their grown son.


Age is an item which has no reverse,

You get “the part,” though you didn’t rehearse.

You can dab on a layer or two of paint,

Do exercises where you nearing faint,

No avail – birthdays get “worse and worse.”


God is sending us a reminder with age,

Let us learn to relish each passing stage.

You fool no one with paint, but you

(Relax – they’re getting older too! )

Getting older one-day-at-a-time is “the rage.”
