This is another scheduled post and the second poem Mum had hanging on her wall.
The Search Continues
First she had bionic knees,
Then she replaced her teeth,
But now things are more serious
As the Ticker’s up the creek.
The Docs gave her an MOT,
A faulty valve was found,
Which explained the fits of wheezing
And that ‘heavy breathing’ sound.
You’ve heard of spare part surgery,
The Cloning of Dolly the sheep,
But in truth Mum really wanted
Some peace and a good night’s sleep.
So she went to Southampton General
Where they fitted a new chest zip,
They didn’t find her brain though,
Once again it gave surgeons the slip.
She’s up and about in a wheelchair,
Doing wheelies I’ve no doubt
But she can no longer kid us,
Her little secret is out…………….
Mum’s found the way to Eternal Life,
Replacing body parts from within,
We now need a ton of Ulay
To rejuvenate the skin!
