Somethings Gotta Give Or I Wanna Refund!



I have two life long friends that are the world's worst givers of the lot!
One is Time he takes back too quickly what little that I got!
The other one is Gravity she keeps trying to give me more to carry!
Between the two, things are looking a little scary!


This poem is dedicated to my other old friend Metabolism.  We used to run the streets together, but now days she is feeling a little sluggish and down.  I think she needs a doctor.  I am hoping she has a quick recovery.

P.S. I have another friend named Menopause, but that is another poem all together.

Different sides of the ocean and we have friends with the same names - hows that for coincidence? (Although i'm not too fond of the last one, she can be a bit shirty)

These poems all took me by surprise and gave me a good chuckle this morning, Carrie. And the pictures definitely 'complimented' the words!

Carrie,
This is brilliant! Yeah, metabolism and me are having a war! Loved it; funny, touching and a reminder of the human condition. It is a gift to age, like fine wine~
