Into the mirror
He vented about age
While brushing his hair
And washing his face.
Ah! How time seemed to ravish him
Tooth, nail and pate!
Then he looked at his weight,
And just shook his head …
So, he spooned up some syrup
To make a change in his fate –
An orange flavoured mixture
To stop the aging process
To leave a page maybe yet unturned
(At least for a while, or so he prayed)
Hoping to cement
At least, his hair on his head
And not dirty the sink
Each morning at dawn
And before he went to bed!
He wanted to stop
His aging prematurely
After all he was just barely ninety-one.

 This is a late entry for Sunday Whirligig 2 which comes out on Wednesday April 8 … I thought I had an e-mail that would advise me when the post came out, but I was mistaken … Many thanks to Magical Mystical Teacher for subbing for the Sunday Whirl!
