Vocational Rehabilitation Continues Apace (The Voc. Rehab Club!)


In the rush,
I never came back,
To tell you,
What had happened.

I met with him (again),
And he told me,
I’m good enough,
To join the club.

I’m official,
I’m damaged enough,
To catch a lifesaver,
They’ll toss next week.


Vocational Rehabilitation


I don’t discount the grouch in each of us,
I’ll share the troubles I’ve got along with yours,
My lot has lost me kith and left me bust,
And scar my face and punch my gut with force,

I turned my inner eye to see my path,
And where it led was nowhere one should go,
I’ve tried to turn my way to miss that sad,
Result that leaves me naked on the road,

And something new (for me at least) arrived,
A helpful nudge from interested folk,
Suggesting something gives me extra tries,
Vocation rehabilitating work,

I’ve had one meet so far that gets me set,
I’ll duly chronicle what happens next.
