The Betrayal Poem by Douglas McClarty

The Betrayal



A great betrayal in life is
when your doctor dies before you
Years of advise binned
The pills to keep me around
Advice now suspect
not that sound
Feel like the pilot
died on the plane
Rest of my days
will not be the same.
I took every word
he said as right
And took his pills
to help me sleep at night
The drugs to keep
my pressure up or down
Everything prescribed to
keep me above ground.
Since he obviously decided
to quit before me
I think it's only right
that I should see
What advice and pills
he took day and night
Perhaps my alcohol, fat diet
and smokes was alright.

Ha! Very humorous and smart write! I am one of those who believe we all have our day when we're meant to leave this world and that's that! Granted, I know a healthy lifestyle would probably make us feel better but in the end I don't believe it keeps us living longer! Great poem!
