TV Ads I Made Fun of

The ďold ladyĒ on the floor
ďIíve fallen and canít get upĒ
Thought this couldnít happen to me
I fell and couldnít get up

I now have one of those alarm things
Hanging around my neck
In case I need help
Itís here in just a sec

Chuckled to myself
When the person ahead of me bought depends
I donít chuckle anymore
Might save embarrassment to me in the end

Glucosamine and Chondroitin
This ad for the joints
Could barely pronounce the word
Am beginning to get the point

When I walk
I hear those creaky sounds
I now take C and G
To help me get around

My grandson says I need one of those hearing things
He speaks so softly I canít hear
Iím constantly turning my head
To give him the other ear

I take my vitamins
A thru Z
You know-iron and all those things
Including B1, B2, and B3

Something I could supposedly do without
Itís needed for my good health
If I take all faithfully
Digs deep into my wealth

Things I donít do anymore

Run-Running days are done

Climb a Ladder-Nothing could be Badder

Hang Xmas Lights-Scrooge on site

Careful when I drive-Eager to survive

Lifting excess weight-Fraid my back will break
