! ! Eh? !

Rating: 2.4

Going deaf
is such a curse.
Yet my listening's better -
'cos my hearing is worse.

Will it improve
my writing verse
if my listening's better
though my hearing is worse?

But, on the bright side - I'm
truth's creditor, not debtor:
my hearing's worse
but my listening is better...

Thats pretty much the way it goes. One lot of senses start to fail and another gets stronger. Very Nice. I like this. MM
