No 318 January 27
Although itís been a month now,
Geoffís backís no better yet,
Heís still visiting the osteopath,
No improvement does he get.
My back is really bad now,
24 / 7 Iím in pain,
We usually share the work load,
Right now itís such a strain.
Geoff does all the vacuuming,
At the moment heís been banned,
Thereís neither of us able,
We find it hard to stand.
But me being so stupid,
I thought it must be done,
So Geoff carried the vacuum down the steps,
And I brushed everyone,
I managed the steps no problem,
Although weíve nearly 40,
I realise now that Iím in pain,
I shouldnít have been so naughty.
I just canít use my right hand,
The pain is hard to bear,
As no-one comes inside the house,
Doing the steps, whoís going to care.
I really am in so much pain,
Canít write a poem for you,
So Iím dictating them to Geoff,
I know heíll pull us through.
