Thanks Chantelle, it was my hubbies cancer surgery in 2013 that got me writing my first poem since my schooldays. Thankfully he is now well but sadly so many of our friends and family have lost their lives to this cruel disease:-( hugs Jan xx

Congratulations on your number 1 position for this powerful poem. I do agree, when one has deep emotions, they are expressed at both ends of the spectrum, the saddest of sad and the funniest of funny, Happy Sunday xxoo

Cheers Mike, I much prefer writing humour but am delighted with the impact this pantoum has had and being at #1 best new poem means a lot to me:-) hugs jan xx

At em Tiger! So proud of you at top spot. Youre a juggler between humor and being serious. Smart girl. Cannabis oil cures cancer , but you know that. You speak for so many.. I love you Jan. Such a stalwart supporter to me also.

Aww Jannie that is such a sweet comment I try to 'give back' to soup by being as active as I can with reading and commenting but my broken finger has curbed my activity lately lol. I do surprise folk and even myself at switching between humour and serious. They now sell cannabis oil on our Island - i hope I am never in the position I have to try it!:-) hugs jan xx

I'm so lucky Barbara, my husband's cancer surgery was the catalyst for kick starting me to write my first poem back in November 2013. the poem is fictional as he is doing very well but I know sadly many can relate to my words:-( hugs jan xx
