    Perhaps I just hid the poem in plain sight to save your eyes, Ralph. Lol.

    Hell of a question clark. I did not write it as a poem. Or did I? Hmmmm......

    Ralph -- I expressed interest in other's thinking.

    Ditch: Yeah, it is a hell of a question, because if the piece is a described sequence of events, then is an invitation to read it for the information it provides. If it is the core of a Stand-Up script, then it is an invitation to look for the comedic turns and incongruities that trigger laughter. If it is a poem, then it is an invitation to be sensitive to the Art of the piece.

    My intent was to try to connect with people by using one of the many
    shared and similar experiences most of us have.

    Humor is very powerful in connections. It is just hard to feel
    closed off when you are laughing.

    Trying to connect is simply a human action. It is an invitation
    for information, humor, and beauty all in one.

    Life is a poem, if you stain your glasses a nice shade of rose.

    A little tap dancing going on there, but hey, this started with
    a medical procedure. Lol

    I must admit that I do too. Best part of the story.

    @clark I wouldn't have said its a poem. I'd have gone for staccato delivery reflecting the frazzled state of mind such public humiliations involve.

    I enjoyed it - laughter is the best medicine

    I need to have prostate surgery. Maybe I should write a poem about the anticipiticipitory dark foreboding I'm experiencing.
