Ode to an Old Lady

Belly up to the old girls’ bar

Stop digging your own grave

Looking down might kill you

It’s happened to other people

People you know

They couldn’t help themselves


Give away your old shoes

Hang the black sweater on the rail

Singing may keep you alive

It’s written in a hardcover book

There’s evidence

A woman lived a thousand years
