Remember to Dress the Fart

or Enclothed Attrition "Currently, it is estimated that 15% of the population worldwide or some 1 billion individuals live with one or more disabling conditions." --United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs Disability The future in the instant comes at last Each time I wake at midnight pressed to pee, My being in my prime, alas, long past Since passing gas near half a century-- As backwards crab I in my shrunken shank Accessorized in cataracts sans teeth And with a ham no mother dares to spank Lest superfluxed she drown upon the heath-- With yet my broken pate and beard plucked off Has Life that villain left me full alone A coward on the stage with but a cough In this atomic "O" here to the bone-- Malfunctioning with mucus and microbes While starkly dressed the part in borrowed robes. Dedicated with Respect and Empathy for the Elderly Suffering in Pain Shakespearean Sonnet January 17, 2022 "Doc"
