Saint Excretia - Poem by Saiom Shriver

Tom is an atheist... suffering in agony
from metastasized prostate cancer. He has been
unable to urinate or release solid waste.
His Catholic sister told him there is a saint
for every situation. Partly as a joke, partly in
desperation, he prayed to a saint whose name he coined: St. Excretia.
In the morning for the first time in a month he was able to
pass waste.
