I wrote this a few years ago when I was in hospital for an operation xx HOSPITAL I'm going to have an operation My bed's beside the nurses station I'm in beside our Sue and Wilma And lying on our beds so firma We pass the time by having a laugh And chatting to the friendly staff It really matters if you're stout Because in paper gowns your bum sticks out Last night as we were trying to sleep Around the ward the nurse would creep She said get up please! Have a shower Your tea will be in half an hour Oh! sorry dear we quite forgot You cannot have some tea that's hot You'll soon be taken down the stairs So as for breakfast just you dare

You know, I think you are safe posting original humorous poetry. Maybe we should wrack out brains and convert all jokes to rhyming form in couplets, or write a humorous sonnet. It is good to laugh at things like hospital stays. I have been fortunate to have had very few of them, and they usually have been quite nice, believe it or not.What I hate are the interminable tests that must be run to find out if they are going to take it out, stitch it up, give it a new route, or just ignore the problem. Take two aspirin and call me in the morning.

Isn't humor wonderful, weemam? Your poem is really cute. I write poetry off-and-on and enjoy reading it very much. In these dark times we could all use a bit of humor whenever we can get it.

This is a good poem. Thank you for sharing it with us. I can really relate to it because I have been through it several times. I even asked for a larger size gown and the said it is one size fits all. Yah! Right! Maybe if all means people under 125 lbs.

That poem is too cute! I just found out that I will probably be having my gastric bypass surgery within a month (hopefully), and that poem will come in so handy to keep me cheered up and not so nervous. I am going to print it out and keep it with me. Thanks so much for the smile hon.

That's a nice poem weemam! And that was a positive thing that you did in the hospital while waiting for an operation....composing a poem. Some would feel tense and nervous before an operation. I also had some minor operation before and family members having major operation and those occasions made me tense and pray that the operation would turn out successful and alright.

Thanks weemam. I'm having a quiet day, so your poem gave me a smile. Are the hospital gowns made of paper 'in your part of the world?' We have cloth ones here, but they're never big enough 'or' long enough. Have a great day.:)
