Woodford Medical - How I have missed you! Part 3
One of our long-standing and most loyal clients took to poetry to express her thoughts and feelings about being in lock-down for the last three months and being unable to see us for her regular treatments.
She sent us not one but four poems the final of which was written after she came for her appointment a few days ago. We are delighted she has given us permission to share them with you.
Poem number Three
The final (hopefully) countdown
To get a call from dear Louise
Was almost too much to bear
When she told us that we’d been postponed I nearly lost my hair!!!
The elastic bands had already snapped My ears - they’d taken the strain
To try to stop the downward drop
It really has been a pain
Whilst we understood the need
To all remain self-distanced...
It’s beginning to cause us all distress It’s like fighting the resistance!!
I’ve aged at least a full 10 years in only the last 12 weeks
It really is so sad to witness the havoc a virus wreaks!!
But the wrinkles and drop are nothing to dread When you consider all the choices
Cos we could have all ended up dead
Had we not listened to “the voices”!!
Sometimes we need to put ourselves behind all others in our arena
Simply to ensure that they remain safe takes preference over our demeanour!!!
It’s at times like this we acknowledge that most people are doing what’s right... That we are all in this together
That we are all in this chaotic fight
To secure that we can all have a life that’s rewarding and virus free
A life that’s full of all we need loads of Botox please for me!!!
And now as I sit in my chair at home counting down the days
Till that first Monday in July realising life has funny ways
I get an email from you guys Advising “opening” on THAT date. At first I read it with such glee and started to accept my fate!!
BUT - then I read the paragraph
That stopped me in my track
The one that advised the protocols
The word ‘temperature’ put me back!!!!!
The Final (hopefully) Countdown!!!!!
Hand steriliser - not a problem
But it will be a task.........
Just hope Mervyn’s up to speed
And can inject right thru that mask!!!!!
It’s been really grim - the last few weeks as skin went south - and east - and west so please God Mervyn's in TOP FORM so BOTH of us can pass the test!!
The thing that really bothers me
Is having a pyrexia
Cos it would quash all hopes of my return
To resembling a serene Rhexia...... (A plant that is also called “Meadow Beauty”)
Get that trough ready - I need TOTAL immersion.
