In this bone rattling winter, life is very tough for elderly. At this moment, my heart goes to all those person who few years back use to be very energetic, enthusiastic and flamboyant, but now old age has diminished their flare. I wish to rejuvenate the same old charm in their lives and revive their glaze. If I had possessed some magic charm then I would have certainly wished something soothing for them.....God bless them. At this instant, as a token of gratitude to all such fellows (with whom I can take the liberty to address) I share these funny lines for their pleasure:
If you are old and have the shakes,
If all your bones are full of aches,
If you can hardly walk at all,
If living drives you up the wall,
If you're a grump and full of spite,
THEN WHAT YOU NEED IS WONKA–VITE!
Your eyes will shine, your hair will grow,
Your face and skin will start to glow,
Your rotten teeth will all drop out
And in their place new teeth will sprout.
Those rolls of fat around your hips
Will vanish, and your wrinkled lips
Will get so soft and rosy–pink
That all the boys will smile and wink
And whisper secretly that this
Is just the girl they want to kiss!
But wait! For that is not the most
Important thing of which to boast.
Good looks you'll have, we've told you so,
But looks aren't everything, you know.
Each pill, as well, to you will give
AN EXTRA TWENTY YEARS TO LIVE!
So come, old friends, and do what's right!
Let's make your lives as bright as bright!
Let's take a dose of this delight!
This heavenly magic dynamite!
You can't go wrong, you must go right!
IT'S WILLY WONKA'S WONKA–VITE!'
Poetry is by Roald Dahl who also authored:
" Down they go! Hail and snow!
Freezes and sneezes and noses will blow! "
Oh yes...! in this freezing winter night as the fog engulfs the city, with a blowing nose and a sneeze : Wishing a Wonderful Year Ahead......
