Hearing ambulance sirens

Close by our environs…

Holiday times tough

Because not enough,

Visits or family inquiring.

At our place ambulances come,

Near every other week for some…

More when lonely

Knowing the only

Events are in Common Room fun.

Alone in a room,

Nobody coming by soon…

Why take care

With no one there,

Waiting for death to come soon?

This Thanksgiving Day,

Turkey dinners for those who stay…

While I’m at work

My wife’ll help twerk,

The spirits of those left alone that Day!

Our neighbor, Dianne is cooking

A turkey or two–others looking–

To stuffing and sides

Maybe less “red truck” rides,

And dessert for any not working!
