EARLY HOUSE CALL

Ambulance flashing red lights,

One of early morning sights…

A resident going

To hospital knowing,

They might spend the night.

Responding to “Nine-one-one.”

Police and EMT’s come…

Waiting inside

For their buggy ride

Is an elder in trouble some.

Most of us have taken this ride,

It’s no thrill riding inside…

Prayers burn

For their return,

Back here where they abide!

TAKING A BREATHER

TAKING A BREATHER

Early–nearly each morn–

We wake up coughing forlorn…

The phlegm we hack

Sometimes swallowed back,

Combined with the irritants borne!
