Trading in the Old for New

You say I rob the cradle?
That merits no response.
It’s standard in my family:
Old uncles want new aunts.

Great Expectations

When I stopped going to the gym,
I lost my augmentation.
This caused a shrinkage rather grim,
Beyond my ex-pec-tation.

For laziness I’ve paid the toll
But I’m no slothy slouch.
I’m using my remote control
For curls upon the couch.

At the Emperor’s Speech

“He’s frowning with such seriousness
But I can’t tell what’s the matter.”

“No worries; his imperiousness
Is just leaking out his bladder.”
