Mother of the Bride Blues

Sunday, July 28, 2013

Hi all you brave Sparkies,
this is a little poem/song I wrote about 3 years ago, around the time my daughter Laura was getting married. I was plump, unfit and rather sad. Little did I know that 3 years later I would have discovered SparkPeople and have lost 9 kg of weight and would be able to run 5k without a break! Yeah!

Mother of the Bride Blues

Feeling rather down at heel,
(was I ever in my prime?)
boobs slackened southwards -
a sign of passing time.

My throats all lizard lined,
is that a treble chin?
dont glance down beyonder -
a dare you never win.

New micro macro diet
was nearly on the cards -
then I worried I would wrinkle,
feel just saggy and sad.

"Ive got Mother of the Bride
middle aged blue blues
pneumatic ringed midriff -
all faded pale blue blues ." (sad saxaphone warbling)

Decked out in satin,
spare tire(s) on display
Stick a flower in my hat,
well - my ankles are okay.

Ignore the wedding now
My mind is going wild
have a soothing cup of tea,
choc bikkies on the side.

Dream those haunches away
(love handles, my eye)
Sling my high heels on the lawn
Dance barefoot with my guy.

"Ive got Mother of the Bride
short sighted grey blue blues
no hope for that zip now -
those veins are all blue blues " (Satchmo style serenade)
that was me on the day of the wedding, sucking in my midriff!

Three years on I do look slimmer.... !
