Copd [2] - Poem by Daniel Bernard Kelleher

COPD is a illness
A warning please heed
A illness of the lungs
Bottled oxygen you'll need

Ways of life change for ever
Things you did, can not do
Infections second nature
Hospitals your second home

Age groups are not exempt
Smokers are first in line
Think your hurting no one
I though the very same

I was once a smoker too
I'am in a wheelchair now
Families suffer much as me
Because I did not heed

My advice to you is simple
Give up those cigarettes today
Or you will end up just like me
A chronic sufferer of COPD
