convinced of the wisdom by a pretty girl in uniform.
I can do it in my chair
oblivious to all the times I'd made the same suggestion.
I've never done Tai Chi
They do it in the village hall, it doesn't cost a lot.
I can even go alone
I won't need chaperoning, there'll be loads of people there.
I wonder what it's like
We tried to do the moves, laughing in a quiet ward.
I hope I don't fart
they'll ban me from the class. We tittered, like we always did.
I'll see you when you're home
Have a good weekend
I'll see you when I'm back
Instead I got a phone call and a 6am knock.
Peaceful in his sleep
a smile upon his face.
