WHEN COMETH THE AIDE?

WHEN COMETH THE AIDE?

Monday morning phone call,

Aide will be later…

When they call and change the schedule

It makes less of a crater!

I really shouldn’t complain

But that’s what poets do…

The service I had with a different V.N.A.

Meant their “one” became a “two”.

Weekends were worst of all

Five towns had just one nurse…

The thing about being homebound was

You accepted who came first!

A POET’S INSOMNIA

A POET’S INSOMNIA

He worked til three A.M.,

At seven, was at it again…

What hours kept

When he might have slept,

Encourages him to keep up this trend?

(ANSWER:  sleep on the weekends…sometimes!)

🙂
