Getting My Grooves On

Happy Birthday they say, you are Forty Six!
Sometimes I'd rather they just threw some sticks

because rocks might break my hip and then I'd die of pneumonia

The years carved in my forehead, rings in the tree
The passing of years has strengthened me

unless the wind blows too hard because I'm starting to lose balance

I have obtained wisdom I would never return
To the innocent girl with a whole lot to learn

cause these knees might go with it and she had a whole lot of roller skating to do

You can also read Joy in the fine lines I wear
Written from neck line to graying hair

at least I can with some 2.75 readers

So I've tipped the balance in the middle of where
If I live to be ninety it's all down hill from there

which is good cause I'm really out of breath

I would not trade a trade a thing I've learned
I would not take back a moment I've earned

except maybe when my boobs disappeared...

And I really don't mind that I've grown to middle age
Gone through the mill I like being this page

cause even though it's been crumpled up it will smooth right out with some Olay,  Right?

  2. Happy Birthday! I love the jingle! But, wait!

    I'm 65, and I'm gorgeous, sexy, smart and funny. You are still in your prime and so am I. So hopefully, this little poetry was just funny, but not at all how you feel about yourself.

  3. oh happy birthday, ms. G!!! you are wonderful at any age. you know what's cool about not ever seeing you physically? i see YOU... (i would have said without my glasses, but apparently that is no longer true for the computer. is it sad that i am a decade behind you but i already feel most of what you wrote? gray hair and all!) wishing you a fabulous year!

  4. Ooh happy, happy day. Funny little ditty, but I suspect you'll be roller skating at eighty. Now get a glass of cabernet and celebrate.
