This Song About Older Ladies Is SO FUNNY That It’s Going VIRAL! I Can’t Stop Laughing!

This Song About Older Ladies Is SO FUNNY That It’s Going VIRAL! I Can’t Stop Laughing! | Literature and Music Events | Scoop.it
Older Ladies by Donnalou Stevens
Well, I ain’t 16, not a beauty queen. My eyes are baggin’ and my skin is saggin’, And if that’s the reason that you don’t love me, Then maybe that’s not love.
Well I ain’t 20 either and I don’t care neither. My hair is gray and I like it that way. And if that’s the reason that you don’t love me, Then maybe that’s not love.
If you don’t think I rock, well we ain’t gonna roll. If you don’t think I hung the moon, my hot just turned to cold. If you want a younger model, I wish you well, sweet pea. ‘cause if you can’t see what it is you have, Then you ain’t having me.
I got cellulite and achin’ feet, And my thighs kinda jiggle when I giggle or wiggle, And if that’s the reason that you don’t love me, Then maybe that’s not love.
My tummy ain’t tucked or liposucked. It’s a little poochy, but I still Hoochy Koochy, And if that’s the reason that you don’t love me, Then maybe that’s not love.
See, I’m no longer desperate. I’ll only have a man, If he has the smarts to see how hot that I still am. If you want a younger model, I wish you well, sweet pea. If you can’t see what it is you have, Then you ain’t having me.
Older ladies, older ladies, older ladies… are DIVINE!
Well I gotta chicken neck and I love it, by heck, It makes a double chin whenever I grin, And if that’s the reason that you don’t love me, Then maybe that’s not love.
I got saggy breasts that droop from my chest, Pert near down all the way to my nest, And if that’s the reason that you don’t love me, Then maybe that’s not love.
If you don’t think I rock, well we ain’t gonna roll. If you don’t think I hung the moon, my hot just turned to cold. If you want a younger model, I wish you well, sweet pea. ’cause if you can’t see what it is you’ve got, You ain’t getting me.
Older ladies, older ladies, older ladies… are DIVINE! Older ladies, older ladies, older ladies… what are we ladies? We’re DIVINE!

Robert Pinsky on “Cascando” by Samuel Beckett - A Classic Love Poem Wracked by Its Own Contradictions

Robert Pinsky on “Cascando” by Samuel Beckett - A Classic Love Poem Wracked by Its Own Contradictions | Literature and Music Events | Scoop.it
Here is a love poem, clear-eyed yet passionate, personal and impersonal in ways I admire: “Cascando” by Samuel Beckett. The poem’s intensity and misgivings are epitomized by the invented word at the end of its first stanza. “Wordshed,” on the model of “bloodshed,” generates associations of violent conflict; from another...
