Forget Ponce del Leon South Korea Is the New Fountain of Youth

 We all know the myth of Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon and his fountain of youth search
If he was looking which historians feel was fiction with facts left in the lurch
Never found it on his last trip to Florida south of Tampa Bay
When he was hit by an arrow coming his way
Mortally wounded by an arrow coated with poisonous sap that hit him in the thigh
Sailed back to Havana where he soon in July of 1521 would die
Today the fountain of youth is the combo of exercise, diet and great genes
But the latest attempt at youth has arrived on the South Korea scene
Tradition in South Korea is that a baby is age 1 year on the day born
Now a baby born must wait 365 days before with age 1 year be adorned
Will those past age 1 be allowed to from their age 1 year subtract
Or will the age you now are known as having remain intact?
