WHEN DOES ONE GIVE IT UP?

(A Hypothetical Post)

Driving and work–a man’s soul–

Part of what makes him whole…

When indeed

Should he concede

It’s time to give up that role?

Neuropathy with pain,

Harder to regain…

Confidence

In his driving hence,

Is he as safe as he claimed?

Can’t really feel his feet,

His senses practice deceit…

Acceleration’s mushy

Uneven and rusty,

In speed he’ll never compete.

Hasn’t yet told his boss,

He fears the total job loss…

Needs someone to talk with–

His status is awkward–

Is fear a justified cause?

Medicos advocating a while,

Say it’s time to change his lifestyle…

Disability

Coverage almost free,

How long can he stay in denial?

—J.E.C.
