Hey Russ, This is clever and oh so true. Oxymoronic one would say! Great Haiku. I read in a book recently about haikus that if one writes 10 good haikus in his lifetime, he then is truly a haiku master. :) I am on haiku number 1! And you? Gwendolen

Quite a bit of irony here, Russell. Had to giggle when I read the last line. Thanks for your lovely comments. My neuropathy is permanent, but I am doing all I can to treat the symptoms. Thank you for asking, my friend. Love, Carolyn

I totally agree. You always expect of others what you yourself would do in any given situation. Good Job. God Bless, JB
