Grandma Ain't Old Enough For Birthdays Any More

Grandma still sports a teased bouffant [F]

And despite her advancing senility [e]

Lindy-hops with her bons vivants [Dassn't Say]

And no little lack of agility [Roland]

Grandpa drives a pink Corvette [Dassn't Say]

And he thrives on increasing depravity [P]

Like munching on a raw courgette [N]

With no little lack of gravity [Roland]

Nana rides her Harley still [N]

With black-leather-jacket temerity [F]

She revs it with an iron will [N]

And Brando-like severity [F]

Papa likes to decorate [N]

In Eisenhower modernity [Anon.]

With paper, pens and cellotape [N]

I doubt my own paternity [F]
