POEMS









If life has dealt a lousy deal

and we have felt a real ordeal,

or have a hurt that will not heal,

dolour can be the thing we feel.


Although we know that it might start,

and also grow within the heart.

Dolour is more than just some grief

from which it’s hard to find relief.


If you have got dolorousness,

it gains control of consciousness.

There it seems to reign supreme,

whilst eating up your self-esteem.

  

As a store of melancholy,

it’s more than an anomaly.

Reflecting everything we had,

that also made us very sad.


To lose a dollar you may dread,

in case you gain dolour instead.

Less funny than the money lost,

becomes dolour as a riposte.


When you are way down in the dumps,

not only is it mood that slumps.

Your whole demeanour slides downhill

until you really feel you’re ill.


If once dolour takes you that way,

there’s trepidation and dismay.

It sort of knocks you for a six,

that’s awfully difficult to fix.


Dolour is more than gloom and doom,

it can consume and then entomb.

Make sure dolour is dealt with quick,

and long before it makes you sick.
