One In The Eye

Old Nobby Clarkson has been reflecting on the marvels of life support systems. In doing so he has found time to share his experiences in prose. When discussing his dilemma he mentioned how much free time he now has on his hands.

Being stuck up with a catheter

is a water works anathema

no feeling of a pressing urge

or satisfaction with the purge.

no whizzing round the porcelain

or flushing of the cistern

no baptising of the wall

it's a self containing system

but looking on the bright side .

the resevoir's half full

you can sit and watch the telly

and not ever need to mull about

a  frantic need a lightening dash

when desperately you need a splash

crucial moments you need never miss

a wee dram’s idling sedentary bliss.
