Fountain of Youth

The Fountain of Youth is forever sought,

as hard as some try – may never be caught.

Some look to the knife to peel back the years,

some turn to the pills to hold back the fears.

Some plaster the goop and spread it around,

some swear by the herbs that come from the ground.

Some head to the gym and wear themselves out,

some swear by the fish from salmon to trout.

For me I’m not sure I’d turn back the clock,

and maybe for you it comes as a shock?

I’d turn off the Fountain and just call it quits,

if finding that Youth meant living with zits!
