In Rehab Waiting Pelvic Knit

I'm waiting here in rehab

For pelvic bones to knit

Waiting for their mending

From concrete, where they hit


Four long weeks I've struggledi

Balanced on one leg

But rehab staff are happy cos

I eat my meat and veg


Sidetracking for a moment....


Now leg and veg don't aural rhyme

Despite they look they should

They're called 'eye rhymes' and trick the brain

To help us think they should


Back to my story....


They feed me little brown pills

To make me bowel-out

Shit! I am not used to this

This boweling-out type route


My grammar it does sometimes grate

I tend to break the rules

Laid down by our great Grammar Board

Who say "this Aussie fool!...."


But hey? I'm writing for myself

As most us poets do

To bring what's inside out of me

To screen.- as you do too

"waiting for pelvic bones to knit"

Years ago (showing my age now) I used to use a pair of bone knitting needles, maybe you could find some.
