“AU NATURALE!” ~ MYSTIC POET 💥

“AU NATURALE!” a poem April 13, 2019 [Saturday]

RESPECT FOR THE BODY – is, sometimes, quite-scorned,
By-the-practitioners of-“Fine-Arts-Adorned!”

My vision ain’t super, but I-still see OK;
Tom, he got “lasik,” just-yesterday!

My hair, it is graying – and thinning a bit,
But-I-like-it-OK! I’m-a-debonnaire-twit!
Of-course, Vice-President-Biden got hair-substitute,
To-(kinda)-match-Obama’s full-head-to-boot!

And, yes, I-got-some-droopin’, sagging-here-and-there,
But I’ve-got HIGH HOPES! – for-physical-repair!

So, when-The-Angels appointed-me-God(?),
And-asked what to do, with “the-standard-carbon bod,”
Well, I-quickly chirped up: “Sil’con’s the thing,
With several replacements of ‘chompers’ we’ll bring!”

So teeth we had lost – came in pretty well!
Hair grew back in and poor vision was swell!

However, ’twas harder – for those who’d had surg’ry,
To-get-their-bodies-back, so – I-urge-us-that-we:
TRUST IN OUR BODIES’ GOOD, “NATURAL BENT,”
And (you-know?)-regarding-our-bodies,
We’re-just-“paying-rent!”
