If It’s Not One Thing ….

I have a rare blood disorder.

I can’t remember its name.

It’s a long word beginning with W

and it’s not a cancer.

It’s an indolent disease that has taken nine years

to get to the stage where it needs treatment.

I’m having a bone marrow biopsy on Friday

to determine what needs to be done but it will involve

some chemo.

On top of this I’ve had a bad cold which really

knocked me around.

Cold sores galore. Unable to shave.

Is anyone listening ?

And if that isn’t enough I’ve got a lump

on my forehead, a conical angry lump

that makes me look like a Tod Browning freak.

People stare.

Booked in Tuesday with the skin specialist

to have it removed.

If it’s not one thing, it’s another

I wish you all good health for ’23.
