 ramblings and things


District Nurse


A little bit of total whimsy from last night's insomnia bout. 
Total fiction for I am hale and hearty on my 10,000 steps a day plan.


Life is just a little boring

But it could be so much worse

But for the regular visits

Of my lovely District Nurse.

Oh she evades my clutches

With her well practiced ease:

 I think every now and then

She deliberately tries to tease.

Says I'm an old degenerate

But I retain a certain charm

As she so very skilfully

Dodges my clutching arm.

I find it so ironical this bed

Once a scene of joy and bliss

Of many a little cuddle

Many a passionate kiss

Should turn into my kingdom

My little sovereign state

As my body slowly starts  

To crumble and deteriorate.

Oh it does the normal functions

Eat digest and defaecate

 And my heart beats still

At a slow and steady rate

But when it comes to movement

It just seem to have ossified 

Though I take fish liver oil

Which the pharmacist has supplied

And I have my little box of

Medicines of all description

Some bought from the  Health shop

 Some supplied on my prescription 

And it seems the Halls of Paradise 

Will just have to wait

For though I can barely walk I'm 

In a dreadfully healthy state.

So I lie here with my memories

And my desires, I've still gottem

And if she gets too close

Try to pinch the Nurse's bottom.

Oh I'm growing old disgracefully

Many a wild scheme in my head

And life would be doddle if it

Just wasn't confined to my bed.
