The In-Body Experience


 Maxine and I, we think as one!
Old age is really not much fun!
Finding that ones outer shell
Is giving-up is just pure hell!
Parts that once were lithe and slim
Now are shriveled-up and grim!
Parts once rounded now are fat,
And really not worth looking at!
People say 'For goodness sake
Don't leap naked from a birthday cake!'
Doctors really earn their pay
Studying, day after day,
Every ghastly variation
On the human situation!
But, though I am an old has-been
My brain is fixed at about sixteen!
And I'm sure Maxine is just the same!
Both of us still in the game!
