Slipping Into A Slot # 2&3 2003

Slipping Into A Slot parts 2&3

Who’da thought the breasts would soften,

Get a little lower, sag?

(The word’s too strong.

My run’s been long.

Not yet a hag.

Then those cheek bones –

Lines beneath them?

(`Wrinkle is a trifle strong.)

Vanity still hits its gong

But lines have flowered.

Who’da dreamt a kidney stone

Could blow up,

Need a blast and show up
