If LIFE Doesn't Kill You - NOTHING WILL
Too much FAT and too much FUN,
Excessive BOOZE, excessive SUN!
Much too PAUNCHY, too few GYMS,
Capitulating to our WHIMS!
Using the LIFT, nary mounting a STAIR,
Rebuffing the SALAD, hoarding the CAKE,
MORE must mean BETTER - apply not the BRAKE!
Now a tad NAUSEOUS - add amplified STRESS,
Needing more TOYS - 'The Jones' to IMPRESS!
Tossing and TURNING, 'Dow' racing DOWNHILL,
If LIFE doesn't kill you?
Over-WORKED and over-SEXED,
Lacking BALANCE - lacking CHECKS!
Bad boys and fast WOMEN - making the SCENE,
The kiddies, the IN-LAWS - the deadlines that HOVER,
Gut in a KNOT - no time to RECOVER.
Smoking with KNOWLEDGE, cancer comes NEXT,
Whence it so FOLLOWS - shocked and PERPLEXED!
Sink holes, mud slides, comets from SPACE,
Ducking those BULLETS takes luck and GOD'S GRACE!
Hurricanes, earthquakes, the odd OIL SPILL,
If LIFE doesn't KILL you?
WANT MORE? I'MKAR'N IS FULL OF IT!
- Can't Keep a BAD Girl Down
From Poetry to Politics - Then Psychology in rhyme, I'll dip my wick most anywhere - so nosy it's a crime!
- NOT OLD - YOUTHFULLY CHALLENGED!
Hush Puppies and walkers - Can't kick like a FLAPPER, Light up the night - With that shiny new 'CLAPPER'!
- This Lady is a Tramp!
If I could keep my mouth shut, smile pretty - bite my tongue, On that dumb-ass social ladder - I might climb another rung!
- BOTOX: Taking a Few 'JABS'...
Demanding 'BABY-BOOMERS' - Used to getting all they crave. Perchance this damned stuff kills 'em? They'll look GORGEOUS in their grave!
