That used to be right, But now it won't float!
Age before Beauty is what we once said,
But let's be a bit more real instead.
Now A's for arthritis;
B's the bad back,
C is the chest pains, perhaps car-d-iac?
D is for dental decay and decline,
E is for eyesight, can't read that top line!
F is for fissures and fluid retention,
G is for gas which I'd rather not mention.
H is high blood pressure...I'd rather it low;
I for incision!(s) with scars you can show.
J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend,
K is for knees that crack when they bend.
L for libido, what happened to sex?
M is for memory, I forgot what comes next.
N is neuraligia, in nerves way down low;
O is for osteo, the bones that don't grow!
P for prescriptions, I have quite a few, (Just give me a pill and I'll be good as new!)
Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
R for reflux, one meal turns to two.
S for sleepless nights, counting my fears,
T for Tinnitus; there's bells in my ears!
U is for urinary; big troubles with flow'
V is for vertigo, That's "dizzy", you know.
W is for worry, NOW what's going 'round?
X is for X-ray, and what might be found.
Y is another year I'm left here behind,
Z is for ZEST that I still have......(IN MY MIND)
I've survived all the symptoms, my body's deployed,
and I've kept twenty-six doctors fully employed!!!!!
