Mother Nature And Father Time

Mother Nature and Father Time
Are such a spiteful pair
Together they commit bad crimes
Of damage beyond repair

Like vandals they have stolen youth
And beauty from our lives
My body it now shows the truth
As middle age arrives

It’s evident in my spreading hips
That once was slim’s now fat
That pair have taken both my lips
And made them thin and flat

They’ve stolen all my copper hair
Just like a common thief
It’s all become a sad affair
They’ve even got my teeth

I must assume that Ma and Pa
Don’t need us to survive
No need to be attractive now
Just glad to be alive!
