The OLD Alphabet needs to be more realistic to float my boat

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty


The Ol
d Alphabet :

 
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 more realistic instead. 














Now
 The



Alphabet:
 






A's
for arthritis;  B's for bad back,  C's the chest pains,  perhaps car-di-ac? 





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 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 's  for libido, what happened to sex?  


M is  for memory, I forget what comes  next.  


N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low;  


O is for osteo, bones that don't grow! 





P
for  prescriptions, I have quite a few,  just  give me a pill and I'll be good as  new!  


Qis  for queasy, is it fatal or flu?  


R is for reflux, one meal turns to two. 





is  for sleepless nights, counting my  fears,  


T is  for Tinnitus; bells in my ears!  


U is for urinary; troubles with flow;  


V for vertigo, that's 'dizzy,' you know. 





W
for worry, now what's going 'round?  


X is  for X ray, and what might be found.  


Yfor another year I'm left here behind,  


Z is  for zest that I still have-- in my mind! 












I've  survived all the symptoms, my body's
deployed,
  and  I keep twenty-six doctors fully employed!
