40th birthday limerick

Thanks to Cyndie, for requesting this, and Happy Birthday to her sister! In less than a year, I can use this on Barry…

So by 40, your hair’s turning gray,
And gravity holds you in sway.
You must stand on your head
When you get out of bed,
Just to keep nasty wrinkles at bay.

But the truth is, you’re not really old!
You are vibrant and youthful and bold.
You can still climb a tree,
You’re vivacious and free –
Now just eat these stewed prunes, as you’re told.
