A Wrinkle in Time

by Nora Jay

“Ageing process is unstoppable, finds unprecedented study”
The Guardian

A new, unprecedented study
Has clarified what once was muddy:
Though creams may fool the odd beholder,
We must unstoppably get older.

The tab, when finally presented,
Was equally unprecedented,
And thus we find two truths, old buddies:
Age can’t be stopped, and nor can studies.
