Old People Can Be Scary

Maybe they are sometimes hairy
And sometimes can look sort of scary.
They do have lots of wrinkles
When they smile the wrinkles crinkle.
I'm sorry to tell you that we are sappy
And what's more can look quite happy.

Grandpas often don't have much hair,
But Grandmas never seem to care.
Some of us are quite chubby,
But most of us are very bubbly.

Under our chin is a turkey waddle neck,
But all I can say is what the heck.
When we are 70 or 80 that's what you get,
However, Grams and Gramps are pretty smart.
They love you with their great BIG heart.

Carol Janovsky, age 83
