It used to be so stylish and large
And have everything but the kitchen sink
As if I expected to be a contestant on “Let’s Make a Deal”
As I aged I found I didn’t need the bag de la barge
My needs had become much more succinct
Gold lining that match the zippers and leather you want to feel
Debit cards as I have lost the desire to charge
And Benadryl comes in handy more often than you think
But four lip glosses are de rigueur because I’m keeping it real!
