Friday Haiku - birthday musings

My birthday musings
Holy fuck I am so old
but not too wrinkled

A word to the wise
It fills up the crevices
If you stay chubby

Body limps along
Aches, pains, and the gut problems
Must wear some good shoes

The freckles fool folks
But the gray hair gives me up
So I dye it red

Too old to have kids
who are at such a young age
I hope I can last

I can't quite retire
while kids are still in college.
Hope they find money

I will eat sushi
My favorite frosted cake
pretend I worked out

Yet I would not change
the path I have come along
I love my people

They might not have liked
me, when I was much younger
I am better now!

Go visit at A Mommy Story to link to more haiku. And eat some cake and wish me a good birthday. Make it with real buttercream frosting.
