THE SIGH OF RELIEF

THE SIGH OF RELIEF

Payday has come–in brief–

We heave a sigh of relief…

Not out of the woods

But in the black–good–

‘Though spending is on a short lease.

Edging back from the breach,

Defying our temptations to preach…

Back from the dead

Financially said,

To do anything is a reach!

–Jonathan Caswell

HURRY UP AND WAIT!

HURRY UP AND WAIT!

Those wheels grind slowly,

Not fast enough for me…

Spent a whole day

In a good way

Waiting a Nurse to see.

Awaiting an evaluation

Of my conditional situation…

For therapy and healing

Progress revealing,

As needed in my present location.

One wag said I’m back from the dead.

At least I don’t look it, I said…

The thing that was rotten

Pathology has gotten,

No jar to put by my bed!

–Jonathan Caswell
