1 Fall downstairs and spend the winter in hospital
The down side. You might die
2 Eat cold food.Except for tea
3 Go to the library to read the papers
4 Live on asylum seekers allowance.You will not complain again
Give asylum if you can
,5 Learn Chinese on You Tube
My kitchens not refurbished
But that’s ok by me
I turn the Taps with pliers
When I make the tea.
The cupboards have no doors on
So I can see inside.
The bread bin has turned green again
So far noone has died.
The cooker needs attention
It’s all the Sunday roasts
I do intend to scrub it out
But didn’t like to boast
Plunged into the icy bath of truth
Love came to my aid to hold, to soothe
The garden looked lacklustre like dull brass.
Waiting for the full rain clouds to pass
Branches wave in dirty yellow sky
Under stormy winds the small birds fly
