Mum’s the Word

Mum’s the
word when
it comes
to surgery.

 

I clean
windows for a
lot of
old people,
& if I
tell them
I had
aneurysm surgery
when they
inquire about
my health,
they brighten
up &
want to
swap stories.

 

So now I say
“Never Better”,
which is
what my
father used
to say,
right up
until he
refused
surgery
& died.
