Since I’ve had an ostomy.

 Many things occur to me.

I take each problem as they come.

Then try my best to solve each one.


A blockage is the kind of thing.

That my ostomy might bring.

It’s hard to know what causes it.

The ostomy or lumps of shit.


As I like to keep control.

I put my finger in the hole.

And as my finger moves about.

I know my stoma inside out.


I had this pain and I was yelling.

For I found a fair sized swelling.

That was the blockage just inside.

So I pushed it to one side.


Then to keep it nice and snug.

I used my normal osto-plug.

Although these efforts are futile.

At least the pain went for a while.


But we all know that chronic pain.

Simply comes right back again.

Now I know what is involved.

I know the problem is not solved.


But when the pain is monumental.

Doing nothing’s detrimental.

But long before the surgeon acts.

I want to weigh up all the facts.


The lump that’s there and causes strife.

Eventually will need the knife.

But in those times when pain is gone.

I feel that I should soldier on.
