I’m not getting older, I’m getting more country
I See Willie Nelson in My Mirror
I used to recognize myself but not
Today. What is this roundness in my face?
Where are the gaunt cheek bones I used to have?
What is this puffiness that’s taken place!
I have to call it what it is. And my
Skin now hangs where it used to adhere. Used
To be skintight when I shaved, and now
I pull and pull or else it gets abused.
It doesn’t hang in folds just yet, but soon
I sadly think. And I console myself
That I always thought that Willie Nelson’s
Face looked great, like a sprightly wrinkled elf.
But now he’s me, and I can’t say I see,
That he is any better off than me.
Just for some added fun
