Visual Lies

The camera never lies (they say)
But I say that it does
I say, it lies for spite, because
I do not look that way

I do not look like that, I’m sure
So old, so gray, so fat
I do not, cannot look like that
This I shall not endure

So camera, I will say farewell
Get hence from this, my life
While I think gratefully, my wife
Now cannot see too well
