There’s no age bar on titivating hair, Apart from putting rouge on wrinkled cheek. A Speaker has the right to looking fair, And prune her brunette hair once in a week. Pandemics come and go, but beauty stays. At eighty, beauty makes a second wave When handsome youngsters leer at granny’s ways, And to impress her get a cleaner shave. Though she may ask us all to wear a mask, It must not hide her young and rosy lips, Or smudge her makeup if she wants to bask In TV lights with hair like fresh tulips. She can do nothing wrong, she is the queen (Of two-faced bitches who are shrewd and mean.)
