The Widow Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 1

Sponsored Links

I don't think men of eighty odd

      Should let a surgeon operate;

Better to pray for peace with God,

      And reconcile oneself to Fate:

At four-score years we really should

      Be quite prepared to go for good.


That's what I told my husband but

      He had a hearty lust for life,

And so he let a surgeon cut

      Into his innards with a knife.

The sawbones swore: "The man's so fat

      His kidneys take some getting at."

And then (according to a nurse),

      They heard him petulantly say:

"Adipose tissue is curse:

      It's hard to pack them tripes away."

At last he did; sewed up the skin,

      But left, some say, a swab within.

I do not doubt it could be so,

      For Lester did not long survive.

But for mishap, I think with woe

      My hubby might still be alive.

And while they praise the surgeon's skill,

      My home I've sold--to pay his bill.
