Age: The Lottery Ticket


Yet another shake-up on Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus meme. (Getting to be a tricky little devil, isn't she?) This time, we've got 25 words plus the three-word prompt, which is (as always) in red.

Age: The Lottery Ticket

Bladders tinkle.
Jugs don't jive.
Stomachs sinkle.
Derrieres dive.
Both lips shrink, while
skintags thrive.
Crow's feet crinkle.
Man alive!
The powerball? Age 25.

Love the music and the poem. It's as if I just went for a fun ride at an amusement park (at age 25).
Thanks Sue.
