No.43

.

My neighbour isn’t dead yet,

Despite protests to the contrary.

Must be a zombie smoking, then,

Out lounging on her balcony.

.

‘Not long for this world!’ she moans,

Too ill to work or clean.

Yet finds the strength to roll-her-own,

Her busy husband’s never seen.

.

To his remonstrations cries,

‘Doc told me not to quit!

The shock would kill me!’ His reply?

‘Well just get on with it.’

.

No.43
