Little Boxes.

Don-1931 profile image

Humans are untidy things,

Who won't do as they're told.

They won't fit in their boxes,

Especially when they're old.

COPD's a useful one

A lot are shoved in there.

But some will say that they don't fit

I don't know how they dare!

Others say that just one box

Is really not enough.

They want to sit in more than one

I tell them "Oh that's rough."

"We can't have people sitting

In just where they wish to be.

Just take this medication,

And we'll sit back and see".

A bit hard on the profession maybe, but I think it's how a lot of people feel.

From reading the experiences of people on here I would say definitely true when it comes to copd.

Too true don.

I like that one Don, your poems make me smile everyday which in turn helps me through the tuff times. Thanks.

I could see quite a few members in this rhyme . Made me smile.

Wonderful Don! This has to be one of your best yet. :D xx

I definitely refuse to get in any box that I am told to. Or insist on at least two. Or three and one for Zebra. I think I feel a cartoon coming on....

Really love this one. Every line counted. Brilliant.

Not being a very optimistic person i think the next box i get in will be horizontally inclined though i will do so very reluctantly.

You sound ready to jump in there now! If you are not looking forward to a born-again skischool with brand new valves in November, then I'll do it for you. :-)

That’s all it is Moy, you can’t expect a dog owner to agree with a cat owner on much. But he’s a good lad. 😉🐕🐾
