Is Plastic Surgery What I Need?
Lately, I’ve been peering closely at myself.
Should I have some work done?
Friends my age have confessed to facelifts, and they look mahhhhvelous.
The local lifestyle mag boasts 4 plastic surgery ads per page.
Somebody’s buying, or they couldn’t afford the space.
The question is, “Where would I start?”
I’ve read the tabloid headlines about starlets “addicted” to the knife
Perfection one incision away, just out of reach
Lucky for me, I don’t have that kind of money
And even if I did, would I spend it on a younger me?
Was a time the term MILF could have applied.
But my son’s friends were way too young for sex.
Thank God! The whole MILF thing creeps me out.
So do I want to become a cougar?
Draw sexual tension to my middle-aged self?
I’ve given the matter much thought.
And come to the conclusion that yes,
I would like some work done.
First, I’d like my shoulders broadened
To better bear life’s burdens,
For myself and for others
My heart’s pretty strong
But I’d like it to be fuller
More tolerant ,
And definitely more kind
My lap, already generous
Could be made more comfortable
I practice with cats for the arrival of grandbabies
My brain – now there’s a spot needs constant attention!
Let me remember
It’s a work in progress
And finally, my voice
It’s mine and mine alone
If it is to last my final decades
I must work to keep it in shape
Expressing the woman I am
Ringing true with the truth of me
Never fake or phony,
Definitely not plastic!
