The other night at my hotel, I saw the most horrible thing. This elderly lady came in, and her face was so caked with makeup that she looked like a clown. And an old man checked in (looked to be in his high 80s) wearing a bright blonde toupee. For the sake of vanity, people hide their own beauty.

Vinny the Vulture
by Ted L Glines

Now Vinny was ugly
befitting a vulture
with a naked head
(but he had culture)
so he got a toupee
a moustache and beard
and strutted his stuff
(looked a mite weird)
all around Vulture Town
his friends hid their laughter
the girls were the worst
their laughs hit the rafter
well, Vinny turned red
and sneaked back home
threw toupee in the trash
never more to roam
and he promised and vowed
to never get nearer
than a hundred miles
to that vanity mirror.

Age should be wear with dignity, when youth is gone and wrinkles take over, one should be proud of have been surviving so long in a world of doggy eating doggy.
I am old and damn proud of it! ! !

people must find the beauty within because the outside will show the real picture to the mirror. Great lesson.

Funny story and a good lesson. LOL
Reviewed by D Johnson 5/7/2008
Looks like a lesson to be learned by Vinny's dilemma.

Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 5/7/2008
The daily dress rehearsal in some old folks' lives to stay and/or look young is rather pathetic. I saw an old lady at the store the other day with fairly shapely legs but she was much too old for those short shorts she was wearing. I guess one has to be laughed at before the vanity mirror breaks.
