When we think of ostomies,

we tend to think colostomies

and then of ileostomies,

and last of all urostomies.


Overall they all do matter,

but here I focus on the latter.

This is because I realise,

I’ve not brought these before your eyes.


Urostomies are fair and fine

at dealing with our spare urine.

Whereas we know the other two

help to rid us of our poo.


Stomas for a urostomate,

can nonetheless exacerbate.

They too have bags that irritate,

and quite a few debilitate.


It’s fair to say it is predicted,

their mobility’s restricted.

When strapped around the leg it might,

then keep that person sitting tight.


I cannot emphasise enough,

that wearing bags can be quite tough.

No matter what the bags are for,

they have related things in store.


It tends to pull when it is full,

no way to say it’s beautiful.

And when the bag’s filled to its peak,

that’s the time the bag will leak.


So people with an ostomy,

from me will get great empathy.

I don’t regret my ostomy,

but won’t forget that there are three.
