The Senior Citizen's Alphabet
A senior friend from the Philippines send me this article. My friend do not know the author, but we both can identify with the article as senior citizens.
A for arthritis, B for bad back, C is for chest pains. Perhaps cardiac?
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 high blood pressure (I'd rather have low,) I for incisions with scars you can show.
J is for joints, that now fail to flex, L for libido--what happened to sex?
Wait! I forgot about K! K is for my knees that crack when they're bent, (Please forgive me, my Memory ain't worth a cent.)
N for neurosis, pinched nerves and stiff neck, 0 is for osteo- and all bones that crack.
P for prescriptions, I have quite a few. Give me another pill; I'll be good as new!
Q is for queasiness. Fatal or flu? R is for reflux--one meal turns into two
S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears, T for tinnitus--! hear bells in my ears.
U is for urinary: difficulties with flow, V is for vertigo, that's "dizzy", you know.
W is worry, now what's going 'round? X is for X ray--and what might be found.
Y for another year I've left behind, Z is for zest that I still have my mind.
How many of the alphabets, can you relate to? If none, you are still not a senior citizen, but your time will come.
