He groaned in pain the other day,  Habit!  was someones diagnosis.

Back surgery , diabetes and deep vein thrombosis….. all in his mind.

He took a vow of silence, “you will hear me no more”

No mumbling, crying,  ’til you all leave out the door!

It was a lonely life before, now quiet the day long.

I’ll bite the bullet,  as you go heal the throng.

“You must be fine, you never complain.”

“youth in Asia”  if you show any pain!

“When you moan you’ve dropped the ball.

If you have to say it with pain say nothing at all.”
