Middle-aged Lament!

I’m so glad my eyesight is failing;
You should see the wrinkles I’ve got.
They stand out when I’m wearing glasses
But don’t seem too bad when I’m not.
I’m not on good terms with my mirror.
The view can be horribly cruel.
So, I tend not to go very near it;
I stand six feet back as a rule.
That’s why I rarely wear make-up.
It wouldn’t be smart, I suppose,
To apply the stuff without a mirror:
Leave mascara all over my nose.
Yes, I’m glad that my eyesight is failing.
It makes me look younger; it’s true!
But only to me. Unfortunately!
I wish everyone else’s would too!
