While Gertrude Recovers

By Elton Camp

Gertrude had been in the hospital a week
To her husband the doctor sternly did speak

“It’s essential you wife not get out of bed,
So be certain that she doesn’t,” the doc said

George assured him that he would comply
That proper care he would be sure to supply

As soon as it was time a meal to prepare
He pushed Gert on her bed right in there

“Is this close enough to reach the stove okay?”
To his dear wife, lying on her bed, he did say
