The News


It came as a shock

When I heard from the doc.

The news that my kidneys had failed


I tried to deny

The fear inside

But alas to no avail


I sat in stunned silence

But you can’t argue with science

At last it was time to leave


I returned to look

At my old medical books

I found the news so hard to believe


I tried to recall

The A & P of it all

And stared at the kidney before me


But no matter how hard I tried

I could no longer deny

That soon I would no longer pee
