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.

You can dab on a layer or two of paint,

Do exercises where you nearing faint,

No avail – birthdays get “worse and worse.”
