Doh Ray Me
19 September 2023
I hadn’t heard too well for ages, a dumbing down of life in stages.
Now, at last, the day of days, I’ve got brand new hearing aids.
Skip and hop I leave the shop, and hear the door behind me close
to brave the busy buzz of Witney for the car park of Waitrose.
The car starts up ….. and I start too! Away we roar as if to war
Though tones had altered nothing faltered. Destination?? My back door.
I hear the key creak in the lock and when I push the door it squeaks
and when I slam, oh what a bang, the biggest noise I’ve heard in weeks!
Clear the kitchen, usual chore, cutlery thrown in the drawer.
A bang and bash, discordant crash, as if the sky had hit the floor.
Then I thought that I heard rain, my washing getting wet again
I bolted out but it was nowt, just trees and leaves in breeze. No rain!
Now that all these things have faded, life is as it was before
and so I think that we have ‘made it’ even better then before?
I hear a phone whatever tone plus TV and music for sure
and whenever I’m at a family chat or meetings of quite a few more
I’m joining in everything……….. OH! >>>>>>>>> I must go
There’s somebody at my back door
My aids are worth their weight in gold. Thank you very much Arnold!
I hear the birds are singing too and join the chorus thanking you.
