Sean Joyce

Why Me

My specialist has found a spot
and it’s on a vital organ, And
yes I know they are all vital
but this one more than most

Such a little speck she said
You will think that it’s absurd
Such a little thing she said
but she could not say the word

Friends have been around
some whispering occurred
They ask me how I feel and
some history was inferred

Now things will have to change
this upsets the applecart
now that tiny specks of poetry
have been found upon my heart

    Oh! Sean! You kept me guessing here. So you're a poet at heart?
    Great Thing.
    Love Duncan
