POEMS









As I muse about resentment,

I’m confused about presentment.

What was first, the fact or act

or the burst as I react?


Do those daft things I resent

come ‘fore or aft some main event?

Or might the feeling creep about

for the right time to leap right out?


When someone’s life just comes amiss,

then anyone must resent this.

Am I resenting my body

presenting me my ostomy?


A lot of my resentment then

was got from discontentment, when

my colon needed attention

and the surgeon’s intervention.


You could say that the surgeon’s knife

took away my normal life.

And what was sent to me instead,

left resentment in my head.


I resent that I was ill,

and disenchantment is there still.

The cost to me I always claim

was that the ostomy’s to blame.


But as the years have passed on by,

I have now cast a different eye

on those worst things that got to me

when I first got my ostomy.


I’ve had a chance to contemplate,

to glance again and ruminate.

By re-presenting what I feared,

my resentment’s disappeared.
