Queen of the Flash


The first indication of menopause is a broken thermostat. It's either that or your weight. In any case, if you don't do something, you could be dead by August.

Queen of the hot flash, that's me.  Here is one transition I could live without.


First you're hot,
and then you're not.
Belly fat
where you used to be flat.
Swinging moods,
and craving foods.
Woman crabby,
body flabby.
Potty at night.
No end in sight.
Like being pregnant, without the baby.
