Another Brain comes to mind

I expect some of you remember me saying about the poems I’d written that Mum had framed and put on her wall. One was called The Search for Mum’s Brain, and the sequel
The Search Continues.

Whilst MOH is here, Pensitivity101 is likely to be quiet for a few days (stop cheering you lot!)

So I’ve scheduled a few things just in case, and the poems mentioned above are two of them.  I hope you enjoy them as much as Mum did.

The Search for Mum’s Brain

First they did the left leg,
Then they did the right,
No sign of grey matter,
Not a brain in sight.
Although Mum’s feeling dopey,
She fights against the bile,
Not sure what they’re discussing,
She manages a smile……………
‘We’ll bend the knees alternately,
To exercise the toes,’
Drifting into consciousness
Hears ‘Let’s try up her nose…’
‘Not so bloody likely!’
She cries out in surprise,
‘I’m here for knee replacement,
Not a couple of black eyes!
‘Oh God we’ve got it wrong then,’
The Doc said with a frown,
‘No wonder we can’t find it,
Your chart is upside down!’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    This is so refreshingly funny when poems all over the place are getting so heavy and high falutin! (Occupational hazard of writers: They take themselves WAY too seriously 😉 Whatever happened to good old self-deprecating humour!)

    I also loved your About pensitivity101 write-up. You are funny, I can tell you that. I love humour and horror, and not necessarily in that order :):)

    A bit of humour from 2 years ago as part of the Flashback themes.
    Mum read this one out at the ladies group she used to attend and it was very well received.
    Enjoy
