Cover Girl

Whilst having coffee in a cafe I overheard a converstion between a couple of ladies which inspired the following.

Cover Girl

To pout like a sexy cover girl 
My age says I’m out of luck,
So I bought a course of Botox
I now have the lips of a duck.

To be slim like a cat walk model
Pert breasts, long legs and doe eyes,
My boobs and bum have gone south
That’s something I really despise.

  2. It's better to be real than a cover version that's for sure

    One can't win them all. The natural attrition of aging beats them even without them trying.

  6. LOL.......When age happened to me, I decided to age gratefully. Given the alternative, sagging seemed a small price to pay. This made me really smile. Thanks. I needed that.
