One Life – My Life

Use this potion

Use this cream

Forget emotion

Start to dream

Arrest the ageing 

Of your skin

Watch your diet

To stay beautiful

You must be thin

Size twelve or fourteen 

You are obese

Don’t cause a scene 

Forget the food

Ignore the feast

Stick to figs

To be glamorous 

You must be a twig

Well Bugger off

Is my reply

Pass the chocolate 

Biscuits, cake and gin

This is my only life

I’m loved and love 

And Iā€™m digging in
