One Single Impression: Uncomfortable

.
Uncomfortable

A little discomfort when I awoke
They said that was how it would be

Two Oxycontins and a morphine drip
Little plus 'on demand' all helped a bit

Red, red rose, loving gift from my sweetheart,
That thoughtfulness from her helped me so much

Best of all she was there her smiling face
Always there ever glowing in the night

On July 18th my orthopedic surgeon replaced my left knee joint with a pre-manufactured one. I came home from the hospital on Friday. A blog series about 'My Operation" is currently in progress at Jim's Little Blog.

One single impression: Respect

.

Respect

having fried chicken
every Sunday after church
grew up on the farm
for these birds was no respect
liking's changed in older years

Prompt word, Respect, suggested by Sandra at If: ... ; la palabra que crece con los otros....

Notes:
1. "La palabra que crece con los otros" translated literally means "the word that grows with the other." I believe the second 'the' probably should be an 'an' making it say "a word that grows with an other." Sandra may correct this in her comment??
2. KFC had a buy-one get-one-free coupon that expired today. We used it after church which reminded me of how tired of friend chicken I had once become. BTW, both of these two piece meals with side and a drink were $5.00 plus tax.

One single impression: Crater — Reader's Choice

There are two poems here with a slight difference:
the first is written in 3rd person, the second in 1st person.
Please leave your preference.
Pardon me if they are too dark for you.



This:

Crater

He's dug himself a big hole, woe is he
He's squandered all his money on the horse
Hole not for swimming rather to bury
Loser he picked is winning not. His curse

Don't wait, that crater will be filled today
He's made his peace with the Lord, He'll forgive
Death by the shovel that dug is his way
Tomorrow you'll find him not though he lives

Horse nagged him once too often for his ears
He's killing his wife of too many years

Or this:

Crater

I've dug myself a big hole, woe is me
I've squandered all my money on the horse
Hole not for swimming rather to bury
Loser I picked is winning not. My curse

Don't wait, that crater will be filled today
I've made my peace with the Lord, He'll forgive
Death by the shovel that dug is my way
Tomorrow you'll find me not though I live

Horse has nagged once too often for my ears
I'm killing my wife of too many years
