Royal Free 2014

And so I live
To tell another tale.
A new hip,
A new life.

I feel the hand
Of the gods,
I feel as lucky
As a jackpot winner
At Vegas.

I feel no pain,
Morpheus rules.
My son gently
Awaits my return
From theatre.
My lover
Does not even

He has found a
New love.
Thirty years younger.
Same old story.
Men cannot resist
A new conquest,
Another notch
On the old bedpost.
The urge to procreate
Never fades.

I do not begrudge him.
Generations of women
Have borne the same insult
With dignity.
I feel their wisdom
Guiding me.
I know what
I must do.

I know the hospital well, worked there! Lots of dramas unfold, I wonder what "you must do" I'm sure dignity will prevail.

Ups and downs: c'est la vie. Resignation, SO well expressed!
