"Crisis after Crisis and Friends Without Knives"

Struggling with crisis after crisis,

day after endless day:

physical and mental health

deteriorating steadily.

Family and friends might casually

knife you in the back,

at any time -

and the few doctors and

"care co-ordinators"

who really care, move on.

What can I say?

But all I can do

is to keep going,

anyway -

and be grateful for the


knife-free friend.

And, for the record, most of my best ones

have feathers.
