Yesterday evening my elderly father had a bad fall while putting out his wheely-bin. These modern refuse disposal assets can be harmful when in the wrong hands. It would appear that just before the end of round 5, the bin got the better of him and landed a hefty punch that landed him in A&E. It led to a late-night drive back up an empty motorway…
My old man ended up in A&E,
Looking like he’d fought Mohammad Ali.
It just shows that we never know,
How a day will end or go!
Driving back up the empty A1,
Late night music records spun,
Charlene sang did I agree?
She’d been to Paris but not to me!
I began to wonder what you would think,
If I too wrote nonsense and blamed the drink!
Would you say “Alas poor Bard,
We saw it coming, so avant-garde!”
I have nothing but praise and gratitude for the wonderful caring staff at the NHS Lister Hospital, Stevenage.
