Falling To Pieces In Front Of Me (Fun Poem 43) - Poem by David Harris

I do believe my wife
is falling to pieces in front of me.
The other night she sat on the bed.
Took out her teeth
and plopped them in a glass.
Then out came the hearing aid
that went into its box.
I though if she removes anymore
there won’t be a lot
to come to bed with me.

    ......and when she took off her wooden leg she fell over?

    Just as well Vera has a great sense of humour! ! !

    Love, Fran xxx
