Regrettable symptoms
of presbyopia are in the
materialization of pricey
multifocal glasses

Sure, you’re seeing more,
or is that euphemistic for
what you didn’t see before
copping the torrid expense

It probably didn’t matter
that much back then but
now you can’t miss any
precocious opportunity

Sleeping with the damn
things hasn’t enhanced
repose better so far, at
least by my reckoning

‘tho finding these clearly
gifted appurtenances of
a morning is appraised
that much more easily
