Oh Dear!

Photo: Oh dear is that Chilli slipping!!!

OH DEAR!

Don't you just love this cartoon!
Old age is certain to come too soon!
And then the bits of tattoo art
Will very slowly make a start
To slide and slither, crease and crinkle,
Disappearing in each wrinkle,
Until that bird of Paradise
Becomes a shape that's not too nice.
It may look like a draggled chook!
And that is not the cutest look!
What's started out as a sweet love-heart
May soon migrate to some other part!
Down to the buttock it may slither
Where it may misshape itself and wither.
It may end up as a shapeless blob,
And, Granny, that will make you sob.
Piercings (another modern fad)
Are ghastly, but not quite as bad,
Because, when the silly age is past
You can get rid of them....and fast!
But tattoos, sweetheart, are for ever.
I don't think you have been too clever!

PLASTIC ROMANCE

Said the Little Mauve Bike to the Little Green 'Thing'
'I always feel skittish in the Spring.
The Yellow Top Twins are a boring pair;
The way you look is much more rare.
It's clear you don't conform to the herd;
I'd like to be your Dolly Bird.'
(You must agree that it's fantastic
How I've found romance in some lumps of plastic!)

Love that tattoo poem Brenda, really made me laugh.

The cartoon reminds me a bit of those saucy seaside postcards we used to have here. In the days before political correctness took over.

Love the tattoo! I see so many men and women on board the ships with tattoos. I wonder how many of them will regret them within the next few years.
