Saying It Like It Is

July 07, 2002

Greeting card to Howard Rosenberg ("In Search of the Greeting Card Poets," June 9):

Why is it that you writers

Seem compelled to always do

When you refer to older ladies

You have to say our hair is "blue"?

Does this nasty little reference

Provide a joke, a laugh or two?

Who do you think will have the last laugh

When we just might outlast you?
