He realized he was an ugly cluck,
What he needed was a bob, a nip and a tuck!
Wanting to improve on his natural visage,
He booked in for a plastic facial massage.
Folk who’ve had face-lifts are having their lifts lifted.
To correct reconstructed work that has since shifted.
People become victim of failed plastic surgery they never needed.
Misreading others’ advice they shouldn’t have heeded.
Some covert a new mouth never seen above sea level.
Just the right fishy pout, just the right bevel.
They just need to know when it’s time to quit.
Before Botox turns Latex-like, not just a bit.
Of course, all this revision is relative indeed,
The backs of their hands will tell that truth that they need!
In most cases, better to stay with what Nature dished out!
Stick with that smile, that looks like a pout.
Don’t listen to that advertisement urging,
And stay well away from the Plastic Surgeon!

Remember well, although it comes as a shock!
Whatever you do, you can’t turn back the clock!
Grow old gracefully, those twilight years.
To look like Mr Magoo is not the worst of your fears.
When you are too old to make up a breeding pair,
Get accustomed to lines and wrinkles, forget that they’re there!
And should you be considering a hair transplant,
Remember, you are what you are, and aren’t what you aren’t!
