Dripping for Octpowrimo Day 5


Drip, drip, drip
go the drops
against the window

Drip, drip, drip
goes the glop
into my arm

Drip drip drip
go the pennies
from my bank account

Thank the Lord
it’s only once a year.



This morning I had my annual perfusion of unpronounceable medicine designed to strengthen my dodgy old bones. Appropriately, for the first time in weeks, the sky is thick and grey like curdled milk, and letting down its cargo on us.  The nice nurse has just gone, and I now await the inevitable side effect, three days of ‘flu.

  4. I’m sorry that the infusion takes such a toll on you. I know several that have to go for them for different reasons.Mother Nature seems quite unhappy with us these days. We are suffering the pestilence while you suffer the floods and Kate deals with lack of rain. We each have something to contend with but your poem showed signs of brightening skies…or heart. Hugs

    A fluid that gives your ‘flu id is not good news! But if it does work on dem bones I suppose it is worth it.
