The New Alphabet for Seniors not boomers

The New Alphabet for Seniors

A's for arthritis; 

B's the 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!

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.

Y for 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!
