When you can HEAR
Your feet SWELLING
Over the hum of the computer

You know you've been 
Writing too many

Time to put
One's feet

Don't laugh
I'm not a

We Old 
South China Seas

Are entitled to
Wear a sarong
When the feeling takes us

These were my feet
When I was 
A younger man

Before oedema
And medications
Raised their ugly heads!

And these are the feet
Of an older man.
Still wearing the sarong though!
