Poetry Corner – Poised

POISED
a poem by Ruby Bonham Lot #127

I knew I was in trouble
The minute I started to sing.
For I was at that stage of life
When my Poise pad I must bring.

Protection from a sudden laugh
When I’d spritz my underwear.
Oh Lord please keep me safe and dry
I don’t have an extra pair.

Poised for adventure
Poised to take a stand
Poised with my protection
With a Poise pad close at hand.

Menopause and mini pads
They’re part of my life these days.
A spritz here and a trickle there
Changed my life in many ways.

For that innocent cough or laugh
Like a scout I must be prepared.
For if I’m not I’ll surely regret
That unprotected I had dared.

So these days I’m always ready
For that sudden bladder trickle
Armed with Poise I’ll never worry
If my bladder will be fickle.

    Ruby,your poetry is beautiful and the humor contagious.I think most of us who are seniors can identify with the subject.Beer drinkers in the summer are most likely to understand the situation.Or is it the winter? Depends.
