The Poet Doctor

ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE

(In Alliteration Form)

 

Old overworked aged heart,

Beating bravely without stopping;

Controlling carefully the rhythm of life,

The terminally ill man holding on dearly,

Amid an attack which can end in tears.

 

Weeping wife beside his bed,

Holding his hands tightly;

Wearily waiting for the bad news.
