    Is this true or what???

    A is for Apple, and B is for Boat,

    That used to be right, But now it won't float!

    Age before Beauty is what we once said,

    But let's be a bit more realistic instead.

    Now A's for arthritis;
    B's the bad back,
    C is the chest pains, perhaps car-d-iac?
    D is for dental decay and decline,
    E is for eyesight, can't read that top line!
    F is for fissures and fluid retention,
    G is for gas which I'd rather not mention.
    H is high blood pressure--I'd rather it low;
    I for incisions with scars you can show.
    J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend,
    K is for knees that crack when they bend.
    L is for liver spots on hands and necks
    M is for memory....can't remember what's next
    N is neuropathy, in nerves way down low;
    O is for osteo, the bones that don't grow!
    P for prescription's, I have quite a few, just
    give me a pill and I'll be good as new!
    Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
    R for reflux, one meal turns to two.
    S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears,
    T for Tinitus; there's bells in my ears!
    U is for urinary; big troubles with flow;
    V is for vertigo, that's "dizzy," you know.
    W is for worry, NOW what's going 'round?
    X is for X ray, and what might be found.
    Y is another year I'm left here behind,
    Z is for zest that I still have -- in my mind.

    I could see in my mind 'Maxine' illustrated with her wonderful sour expressions alongside those "A,B,C.."s, hehe!
