A Little Fun Keeps You Young

A Little Fun Keeps You Young


A little fun keeps you young;
A little laughter keeps you bright.
When you get to that age
When a mid life crisis looms
Go out and act like a kid again.
Don’t worry what the neighbors might say
They are probably crazy anyway.

Change your hair color grow it long
Change your style and wear a thong
That will put some spring in your step
Or goose yourself to give you some pep
Don't worry what the neighbors might say
They are probably crazy anyway

Dance till the wee hours in the morning
Let loose, but don’t get lost in the spring
Smile, even if there’s nobody around
Run, until you’re nowhere to be found
Don’t worry what the neighbors might say
You are more than crazy than they anyway..


Pssst..have fun reading this, please, lol.

a fun collab write with David Harris and Jojo Bean

    Superb write and very sharp humor, love the thoughts in this kyrielle poem. The last lines repeated gave the poem a lot of pizazz. Happy New Year Meggie.

    I certainly did have fun - and laughed out loud at some of the images. Well done Meggie and friends. And I'm with Ivor, if i gotta get old, I'm going to make the most of it.

    I aim to grow old disgracefully I have behaved well for long enough
    It is past time to enjoy some fun
    You are only as old as you feel

    'A little fun keeps you young;
    A little laughter keeps you bright.
    When you get to that age'...

    Funny and amusing...fun apart, i find a ray of wisdom in those quoted lines...do you mean a kid daughter- a grand daughter- will keep us 'young' when we get to that 'age' Meggie? ...excellent piece...10

    Meggie, you and the guys have done a fabulous job with this crazy fun filled poem. To clown around makes the world a happier place, and as you say, the neighbors are crazy anyway.
    To release the happy child in us is an enriching experience. We have laughter clubs in our city where people just go and laugh together for quite long periods of time and it helps their lives so much! 10 Karin Anderson

    This is a very charming, entertaining, and enjoyable write, Meggie, and a splendid collaboration with two other poets. It certainly brought a smile to my face, and despite what the crazy neighbors may think, it seems you have found the secret to leading a happy life! Carl.

    I've a mid life crissis oh what shall I do
    I'm all tied up in poetry to
    from the early morn till late at night
    words just arrive they argue and fight
    each want a place inside a rhyme
    I sit and laugh, you'll all get time
    just leave me alone in peace for awhile
    then you can all come togetther in some new rhyme..lol......have fun..John
