Virtue’s Too Nice For Avarice And Vice

Or are they one and the same,

Every vice has a craving associated with it.

Every person has a vice and a craving,

‘Who does it’, may sound like the right question.

How often…

Place vice on a pedestal and get really bad.

Deadly sin no longer has a ring on its finger.

Mortal has a better sound, had the flu of late.

Make me date,

There are viruses that would make your hair curl.

The body can’t tell the difference between protein and a virus.

All roads lead to recycling,

Who said anything was good to eat,

We better beat that drum.

Rum, rum, rum.

The race, the digital age, designer drugs

The timer is set, watch the news to hear the latest doom and gloom.

Set the stage with disaster to welcome our next triumph: recycle, reuse,

Are we part of a life cycle or a death cycle?

Cloister, cluster, life can be a mom with despair.

Yet, we are topping out with our population and poverty has been cut in half.

The good news and good life is a proposition.

Gravity is good when it holds things together.

Universal is almost as big, we strive to bring ever piece together.

Gloms together like real life, can it get any better?

Me and My Gallbladder

A gallstone wedged in the liver or stuck in a canal that runs between it and the gallbladder…

Huge pain, from a bundle of nerves, it radiates under the shoulder blade or is it in front by the solar plexus?

The hot pain is constant for hours, finally a change, a gag reflex, heaving and up comes everything in the stomach.

6 hours in the emergency to get a bed and a blood check.

The doc sends me home, in the wee hours of the morning.

Slash 15 years later, I check my progress.

Still have gallstones, according to the ultrasound and doctor.

I am keeping a healthy diet:  much more veggie.

Is my gallbladder worth enduring all the pain?

It’s not bad when I eat right.

And I suffer a little in the late night and wee hours, but I am staying on track with proper diet, exercise and lifestyle.

My gallbladder reminds me what is important.

And if I loose it someday, it will because of an infection, or a good medical reason, not because of a lack of trying.

Going To The Doctor

The ritual of cleaning up the body, preparing the mind and learning about the clinic, doctor and registration process.

How often is a check up necessary?

How often is it important to see the doctor?

 

The experience of a doctor’s visit.

Using the out comes to the best advantage.

Do you need a second opinion?

Does it harm you to follow the doctor’s orders?

When to question a doctors authority.

 

Many people need to go to the doctor on the regular basis.

Some not so often.

To learn the difference.

Being a good patient.

When to complain or sue?

 

Most of us can benefit from learning how to use the doctor in a safe manner.

Education can teach us to be safe and have an easier time when we are sick and need to see a doctor right away.

Using a clinic, a family doctor, a specialist or the Emergency.

Learning our way around medical insurance and the rest of the system of information.

 

Obtaining a clean bill of health.

What if, I am sick?

How to get better and follow the doctor’s instructions.

Using the medical system is easier said than done, we can all benefit from a little support, information, understanding, patience and good will.

 

 

Her Game

She waits, she longs, she desires…

Quiet spaces leave everything so empty.

Time slowing down makes waiting all the longer.

Fine food and wine and company is just a prelude to touching, kissing and hugging.
So much to do and gaps full of emptiness, waiting and desire.

The roller coaster is running fast, up and down, and around again.
He is a rolling stone who arrives unexpectedly and leaves too quickly.

He is here and gone again.

She wants him.

She needs a man.
He is gone.

She is free again.

Will she find some other guy?

She waits, she longs, she desires…
