HEART ATTACK VETERAN

 


HEART ATTACK VETERAN

 

-         Mike Jenkins (U.K.)

 

The woman was a veteran of heart disease.

We knew her from up the forestry.

“I’ve ad two eart attacks ….

An I’m still yer, breathin!”

 

“This gentleman’s joined the club!”

She explained to her hubby.

“Ow many eart-attacks yew ad, love?”

 

I felt a fraud, a mere novice 

Even though I was struggling

With info on pills and treatments ,

Those telling paroxysms.

 

 “Ah….no…I’ve got atrial fibrillation!”

“ Oh, A-fib !” she dismissed,

“ tha’s nothin!”  I was in the 2nd division

Of the Cardiac League.

She was mid-table Prem, thriving.
