They Said

flowers-grave

They said

Everything seems in order

It’s all in your head

 

They said

Well no more walking then

Use a frame instead

 

They said

We don’t know what it is

But it’s nothing to dread

 

They said

Save your energy

Do stretches in bed

 

They said

Trial medication

We’ve got the go-ahead

 

They said

Take these supplements

You’re underfed

 

They said

No more exercises

Just rest in bed

 

They said

Nothing’s working

Perhaps we’ve been misled?

 

They said

Your welfare is paramount

You’ll be washed and fed

 

They said

Can’t you hear us?

We’ll shout instead

 

They said

We can’t understand you

Ah, it must have spread

 

They said

Oh, what a shame

Your life hangs by a thread

 

They said

We can’t help you now

Your account is in the red

 

They said

And they said

And they said
