Before I lay me down

I discovered a funny poem today and I wanted to share it, so here it goes:

Before I lay me down to sleep
I pray Dear Lord o find my feet

I know there are two down below
With my fat belly they don't show

Please Dear Lord no more gray
Take the hips from in my way

My breasts are huge and hurt my back
Why does my butt stick out like that

My bones creek, I'm getting old
A face with wrinkles
New pains and folds

I wish that I were young again
I'm kneeling Lord beside my bed

Can you hear me as I pray
Please give me a sign
In some small way

I need a miracle
Willy you help
My knees have stiffened
I can't get up...

Rose Marie Streeter (2002)
