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

(Nice.)

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.
