WE JUST HAVE TO SMILE…!

WE JUST HAVE TO SMILE…!

Any smile I’m wearing is wry,

Making mistakes–don’t know why–

Sent a phone call the wrong way

Deathly silence I might pay,

Gotta take it a strp at a time–or try!

Not neglecting myself is wisdom,

In following steps I’ve missed some…

Taking insulin and test

Seems to be the best

Options if I’m going to win some.

–Jonathan Caswell

OKAY, DOC!

OKAY, DOC!

 

He went to his doctor today,

Couldn’t put it off anyway…

She said he must want

His good health to flaunt,

Despite his medicinal array!

That is, medicine has its limits,

He can’t command it like the NIMITZ*…

He will have to try

To be his own guy,

Putting his backbone in it.
