Get Well - Poem by Ian Humphreys

There are only two things to worry about....
Either you are well or you are sick.
If you are well... then there is nothing to worry about...
But if you're sick, then there are two things to worry about...
Either you will get well or you will kick the bucket...
If you get well, there is nothing to worry about...
If you kick the bucket there are only two things to worry about...
Either you will go to heaven or hell...
If you go to heaven there's nothing to worry about
But if you go to hell you'll be so damned busy
Shaking hands with your friends
You won't have time to worry!

So don't worry - Get well!

    This one really made me laugh Ian. A very cleverly 'laid out' piece of poetry. I really enjoyed it. Thanks. Sincerely Ernestine Northover. (Report)Reply
