THE NEW ALPHABET
A is for apple, and B is for boat,
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 realistic instead.
Now the Alphabet is:-
A's for arthritis;
B's the bad back,
C's the chest pains,
D is for dental decay and decline,
E is for eyesight, can't read that top line!
F is for fissures and fluid
G is for gas which We'd rather not mention.
H .. High blood
pressure--We'd rather it low;
I .. For incisions with scars you can
J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend,
K is for knees that
crack when they bend.
L 's for libido, what happened to sex?
M is for memory, We forget what comes next.
N is neuralgia, in nerves
way down low;
O is for osteo, bones that don't grow!
P for prescriptions,
We have quite a few, Just give us a pill and We'll
be good as new!
Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
R is for reflux, one meal turns to two.
S is for sleepless nights, counting our fears,
T is for Tinnitus; bells
in our ears!
U is for urinary; troubles with flow;
V for vertigo, that's 'dizzy,' you know.
W for worry, NOW what's going
X is for X ray, and what might be found.
Y for another year We are left
Z is for zest WE still have-- in OUR minds.
all the symptoms,
our body's deployed,
and We're keeping twenty-six
doctors fully employed!!!
IF YOU ARE OLD, HAVE A GREAT DAY,
IF NOT, YOUR TURN WILL COME!!!
