Olden Days in Saint Tropez

To the woman standing next to me at the bus stop today...

Going down south
Over the Christmas holidays
Spending all your waking hours
Baking in the hot sun,
So much so
That your resemble  the
Old Ladies in Saint Tropez
In the 70s
With their bbq-ed charcoal ash skin
That cracked like elephant hide...
Is just plain crazy.

I swear, her skin was the colour that I had not seen in over 30 years: since the correlation between sun and skin cancer became known.
