When life gives you menopause and turns up the heat
spike your lemonade and put up your feet.
Get your sass on, you’re an outrageous woman
with wisdom to pass on.
Embrace the archetype, be a Midlife Maven.
Toot your horn, rule your roost, collect your due,
exact your revenge for the weight
that now stays on
your hips, your rear and (whoo hoo!) your boobs.
Sit upon your throne, suffer no fools,
shake things up a bit, change the rules.
Dance to your own tune, there’s no piper to pay.
The second half of life is now yours to create.
