Aging, A Limerick

Yore: a visit to my eye doctor

My vision’s crap, I know that for sure

He noted my age

His comment was sage

Young and handsome, yer no anymore


He continued, not ready to stop

My knee itched, bent to bury a pop

Looked into my eye

And to my surprise

He said handsome is what you’ve still got


*Despite the qualifier, shut the duck up.

Brace yourself…

No makeup😵‍💫, hair unbrushed, 🫣breath smells like face looks. 🫢

It’s true, aging is one of my fears

When he voiced it, blood poured from my ears

I will now admit

The number, damn it

I’ve been 29 for 30 years.
