Jeanne Calment - Poem by Ima Ryma

Jeanne Calment lived a lot of years,
One hundred and twenty two plus,
A record in the Guinness spheres,
Longest lifespan of all of us.
Olive oil on food and on skin
Was her secret fountain of youth.
She enjoyed moderation in
Cigs as she got long in the tooth.
At age 90, she made a deal
For life to get fat monthly check
For real estate - a buyer's steal!
A lawyer bought it - what the heck!

1997 - Jeanne died,
After life's longest human ride.
