The Beauty Of The Seventies - Poem by Francis Duggan

Three decades back so pretty and lovely to behold
The beauty of the seventies she now is looking old
Though she dyes her hair brown and wears makeup to cloak her wrinkles and gray
It does seem rather obvious she has known a better day.

Her grand daughter is thirteen and time is ticking on
The beauty of the seventies her better days are gone
There was a time she turned heads but those days for her o'er
She was crowned the Town beauty queen in nineteen seventy four.

The beauty of the seventies is now a divorcee
Her husband left her ten years ago a faithless one is he
But she will remain single and in her future plan
There isn't anything about she growing old with a man.

The beauty of the seventies is bowing to father time
Three decades back she was twenty two and in her glorious prime
But time doesn't wait for anyone and ageing affects us all
Though of her young years in the seventies she has good memories to recall.
