Seniors New 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 a bit more realistic instead.
 
D is for dental decay and decline, E is for eyesight, can’t read that top line! F is for farting and fluid retention, G is for gut droop, 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! Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu? R is for reflux, one meal turns to two.
 
S 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 I still have– in my mind!
 
I’ve survived all the symptoms, my body’s deployed,And I’m keeping twenty-six doctors fully employed!
 
HAVE A GREAT DAY !
