In my last book on ostomies,

that past work covered it with ease.

My mind told me the field was small

to find so many rhymes at all.


I might not for the life of me

write any more on ostomy.

There seemed no more for me to verse

within the osto-universe.


But then before the book was done,

I went and penned another one.

By now too late to publish it,

I wondered where the verse would fit.


I won’t let verses go to waste,

as I don’t like the aftertaste.

I’d slide the poem to one side,

so I could think and then decide.


But as the time would drift on by,

another rhyme I could espy.

This story would repeat itself,

‘till several more were on the shelf.


I browsed around and took a look,

and found that I had half a book.

But when you find you’ve just one part,

then this is when the work must start.


I guess there was not near enough

unless I wrote more of this stuff.

The subject needs much more regard,

even though such work is hard.


I sat and pondered every day,

and wondered what on earth to say.

But then a verse would call to me

all about my ostomy.


Don’t fret, we’ve done enough at last,

so let this stuff in print be cast.
