Monday Surgery and all went well so a verse to share
Alas, my knee, a faithful servant you have been.
Now surgical repair, and a new part to break in.
81 years and nine months of wear and tear.
Yes, there have been extra pounds to bear.
Walk and jump and run and sports to play.
All that abuse in so many a yesterday.
Arthritis and aging, pills and creams only go so far.
Face it Willie, your left knee is just not up to par.
Some days, a limp and a little pain in every step I take.
Yes, my friends, these old joints feel it and really ache.
Your long strides in walking are now a distant memory.
Your knee didn’t come with a lifetime guarantee.
