CONFLICTED

When
his heart doctor
told him to “walk, walk, walk”
to help him deal with his life
he became an obedient patient.

 

Later
his orthopedic doctor
told him to stay off his feet
as much as possible.

 

He felt conflicted!

 

He hoped to join
a self-pity support group
but his mobility
was insufficient
to enable him the joining..

 

So he stayed at home
and tried to write
a poem or two or three.
