A WOMAN'S FACE:
Helen had a face that launched a thousand ships,
Mine would launch a canoe.
With visible lines here and there,
I don't know what to do.
I bought creams advertised on TV.
But to no avail.
What they don't tell you in TV,
That they're promoted by young girls.
The mirror is no longer a friend of mine.
That I'll have you know.
For looking into the evil glass,
One more line it shows.
The problem is I feel "Young".
Not a bad thing I agree.
But it's the outside that's all wrong,
The part that people see.
Perhaps you think me vain.
Perhaps you think me mad.
But I like to think they're laughter lines.
Which at the end of the day is not so bad.
