A WOMAN'S FACE:
(as the mirror reflects)
Helen had a face that launched a thousand ships,
Mine would launch a canoe.
With visable 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 on TV
That they're promoted by young girls.
The mirror is no longer a friend,
That I 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 people see.
But I do possess an inner peace,
That comes out on top.
Perhaps my friends one day,
I'll have a go at Botox.
Perhaps you think I'm vain,
Perhaps you think I'm mad.
But I like to think they're laughter lines,
Which at the end of the day is not so bad.
