P is for Parkinson

Gracious the meadow

between thought and utterance:

would that we both dared linger!

But some thing bored

mandates completion; hence we stand

impatient with flowers.

Why hurry our fears onward to death?

Let’s stay in this place

we’ve both never been.

There’s a part that’s missing, see

We won’t say which one it is

(don’t want to worry you)

but let’s just say you wouldn’t

want to fly without it.

Now the thing is,

we don’t have this part locally.

We’ll need to fly it in

on a plane that does fly,

and that could be some hours.

Meantime, why don’t you just

sit back, enjoy your Coke

and complimentary chips

and leave the worrying to your Delta Sky Team.
