It is still my birthday month, so here’s another one I wrote to commiserate with me.

(I)

Now my life is halfway through
Already I’ve a taste
For all things sweet and fattening
Ergo: expanding waist

(II)

They gave me three-score year and ten
Today I’m halfway there
Soon I’ll double up and then
I’ll have less teeth and hair
