Lost Only Once - Poem by gershon hepner

-->

What’s lost only once, and once lost, lost forever?
The answer’s not hard, and you needn’t be clever
to know when it’s stiff you can’t bend from the waist:
It’s the bone that’s removed when your hip joint’s replaced.

Inspired by Christopher Marlowe, who wrote:

Jewels being lost are found againe, this never,
T'is lost but once, and once lost, lost for ever.'
