Grecian Formula No More

Beard is white

Hair color of

Old bleach

Not even Grecian Formula

Can change it now

It’s not so bad

Except for the wheeze

Can’t dance like Fred Astaire

Then again I never could

You are not old

You are seasoned

Spin the wheel of time

Land on trips to exotic places

No more Grecian Formula.
