When talking about my ostomy,

too many verses seem to me

to labour negativity,

not favour positivity.


I now attest that I will try

to do my best to rectify,

the bias that was written when

I held a pious poisoned pen.


Lots of those bad things I knew,

and what I chose to bring to view

were at one time felt so strong,

because I dwelt on them too long.


So now I must look forward to

composing verses just as true.

Swapping from the diabolic

and opting for the more symbolic.


I’ve not been one for smartarse jokes,

or for the fun that this provokes.

But now that might be in my past,

and I can put things right at last.


I might go rash with jollity,

with dashes of frivolity.

A touch of humour never hurts,

and much of it will come in spurts.


Those little spurts might remind me

of bits about my ostomy.

But now I’ll see the funny side,

and look upon the sunny side.


Because to me humour can fit

with ostomies and toilet wit.

The two combined might bring a smile,

and that might make this thing worthwhile.
