Three lives connected since teenage years
Held a future with no fears.
They reached adulthood and followed their dreams
Nothing panned out, so it seems.
When they met to exchange their news
Dotty was firm with her irreverent views.
What did Nora and Wilma care?
Their friendship, still so ever dear.
Nora chose an early marriage
Desperate to push a baby’s carriage.
However, life was not all marital bliss
After twenty-five years, hubby blew one final kiss.
He’s moving in with a beautiful young dolly
Nora was furious with his mad folly.
She brought out a knife and threatened to lop
His manhood off with one quick chop.
Wilma’s life was great until
A hasty decision to chuck the pill
And marry John, her boyfriend of years
Before her biological clock disappears.
In quick succession, three children had she
But John decided he wanted to be free.
He emigrated to Alaska to pack fish
Out of her life, he did vanish.
Dotty the oldest and impetuous one
Certainly knew how to have fun.
A blissful marriage of years by forty
Sex was euphoric and rather naughty.
But alas this wasn’t to last much longer
Sydney, her husband, the silly codger,
Climbed the ladder for a hedge to trim
A car knocked him off and broke every limb.
Three people entwined forever more
Must cram their lives with fun galore
As golden years pass in a flash
It’s time to venture with a bash.
Nora and Wilma are not too keen
Age is creeping and wrinkles are seen.
“Nonsense!” says Dotty, a destination she’ll find
Never forget, “age is a state of mind”
