“How are you?” they ask – What a “temptation to tell” Of old joints that ache, And ankles that swell, Of a back that’s in pain, And a neck that is stiff, And a face that is wrinkled And could do with “A Lift”! Of fingers – so numb, Of toes that go “crack” Oh! such are my woes – Alas and Alack! –––––––– “How are you?” they ask, So I “Put on some style” “Oh! I’m feeling fine, thanks” And give them a smile!
