How many years
have you contorted your face?
Opened cans,
with your mouth out of place?

Have you spent a lifetime
squinting at the sun,
instead of putting
your sunglasses on?

Is it necessary to hold
your mouth open
when applying mascara
thick and coated?

Must you grit your teeth
while opening a jar
and purse your lips
while driving a car?

Do you stick your tongue out
while tying your shoes?
Do you do these things
without a clue?

Grimacing and twisting
and frowning and such
will carry results
even Botox canít touch.

Yes I often wondered why people and at the risk of sounding "chauvo",women submitteed themselves to such extreme forms of torture and a lot still do.

My face is rapidly beginning to look like how the palm of my hand does after it's been in the bath for 20 minutes! I would now gladly swap my visage for the skin of that of a baby's bottom... any volunteers?! Desperate - yes, I think so... not!! :)) LOL Kate xx

Oh Janet this is so fun! Boy oh boy I absolutely KNOW that many of my "cracks and crevices" are from facial contortions - PLUS I'm a big "smiler" so my smile lines will never go away. I wouldn't mind the rest of them going elsewhere, but the smile ones maybe aren't so bad....shows I at least can LAUGH unlike some folks.....This is a simply adorable poem. Love it.
