My Consolation

Published by Susan on 08/08/2003 (3523 reads)
'Nay; I don't need a hearing aid'...

'Nay; I don't need a hearing aid'
       I told Mama-in-law;
'For if I had I'd be afraid
       Of your eternal jaw;
Although at me you often shout,
       I'm undisturbed;
To tell the truth I can't make out
              A single word.'

And it's the same with others who
       Attempt to gab at me;
I listen to their point of view
       And solemnly agree.
To story stale and silly joke
       Stone deaf's my ear;
Each day a dozen stupid folk
              I fail to hear.

So silence that should be my grief
        Is my escape and shield;
From spiteful speech and base relief
        My aural sense is sealed.
And in my cosy cot of peace
        I close the door.
Praising the gods for rich relief
              From fool and bore.
