Auntie Marble & Auntie Raisin
Auntie Marble had a face
That looked like porcelain
The smoothest thing you’ve ever seen
Not a crack upon that skin
SPFs! The way to go
She mumbled, frozen faced,
And a little nip and tuck as well!
They just trim off all the waste!
Avoid the great outdoors as well!
Its only cause you crumpling!
Creams will keep you fresh and young!
And surgery is quite something!
And when you travel, pack your bag
With all the concoctions you require
Pumping filled and youth infused
You can’t wear out or tire!
But Auntie Raisin had a face
That looked like a web of lines
Of cracks and divets running wild
And it suited her just fine
This one, she said, pointing to her mouth
I laughed until I cried
This one here on my forehead
Is from my first joyride
This one grew on horseback
Squinting at the sun
The line is a little deep right there
But oh my! It was fun!
And these softly mottled hands you see
The spots and marks right here?
Those are from the sailing boat
I lived on for a year
My cheeks are cracked from all the rain
Traveling through the wild
And this one here's a salty tear
from an old love I exiled
A windswept ride in a balloon
Left this wrinkle you see right here
And a whispered poem from a true love
Left this mark upon my ear
A deep sea adventure caused my nose
To redden at the tip
And these were made from my first ever
Midnight skinny dip
A wrestle with an alligator
Left this little scar
And following that I got this burn
From a scuffle in a bar
A train ride through the Himalayas
Caused an extra pucker
A hug from an octopus
Left this ring from his sucker
The wrinkles on my chin are from
Shouting race track cheers!
The grey hairs made from worry and love
For all my nears and dears
When you pack your bags make sure to bring
Your sense of love and wonder
Bring your heart, your spirit, your boots,
To dance in rain and thunder!
And relish in your own grand life
And cherish your own glory!
No matter how old or young you are
Your face it tells a story
