SALTY …BLOOD

A Crystalline mineral, essential for life
Edible rock salts, gray, pink, or white
Sea water … deposits on rocks …it’s true
Rises blood pressure …tastes great in stew
Your pressure’s up, you’re salty enough
I offer your meds …you say …no more stuff
You frown looking tough …I wait awhile
Finally you take …with a smirking smile!

Can’t …Is a Fact!

Your symptoms worsen
I’m thinking …O.K.
We’re going that way
What come …what may!

Then, I see you spitting
Your meds in the trash
I’m thinking …
I can’t yell out …or lash!

You’re not together
That …is a fact
No fretting … worrying
Will … ever… change that!

So …onward we trudge
Toward tomorrow
Some days good, some not
As I … wallow in sorrow!

I bet I’ll stand there and watch her swallow! Ya think? My sister Sharon says “be the tiger”
