Ukraine is in Pain (a Limerick)

Not really a humourous Limerick, this one is quite melancholy, reflecting my back pain over these last few weeks …

Ukraine is in Pain (a Limerick)

There was an old poet in pain

Who had been struck down by hard rain

He felt thorns in his back

Like a missile attack

Misguided shrapnel from Ukraine

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

    1. Ouchie Carolyn … I’ve just woken up .. I went to bed earlier than normal to get an extra long sleep .. it’s been my bestest sleep for 3 weeks … I’ll get up and do my exercises and then get ready to go “one” this morning to my monthly poetry meeting … I think it’ll good for me to get out and about.. my Physio wants me to do some short walks… so this will be a nice start… I took Frankie for a very short walkie yesterday … and I see the Physio again on Monday… 🤗🌏💕🐶
