Comical satire

Proverbs 12:8 New Living Translation (NLT)

A sensible person wins admiration,
    but a warped mind is despised.

 

Age brings wrinkles everywhere even in places unexpected

Is that what a mirror is for to keep track of all the fat?

So when heaviness of flesh sets in and wrinkles disappear

As folds start to develop in to a layered aftermath

 

Mirror “mirror” on the wall it seems my clothes are shrinking

And the only time I see my toes when I sit down in my bath

Here is a piece of good advice that when you’re reminiscing 

Iron the wrinkles in your mind and the folds that pave your path
