A Prostate Lament
I, who once measured out my life with coffee spoons ,
Now measure it out with toilet stops,
And travel with strips maps downloaded from:
www dot toiletmap dot gov dot au.
I, who once camped in mountains and high plains,
And stopped where I wished in many questionable pubs,
Must now stop in a major centre, with a good emergency department
And a resident urologist.
I, who once travelled light -food, clothes, tent in a backpack
Must now carry half a case of medical paraphernalia,
Medical history and urologists listed from:
www dot usanz dot org dot au slash find-a-urologist.
I who once could travel at short notice almost anywhere,
Must now plan carefully and no longer stop at a whim.
But I still travel - with restrictions and complications,
And for that I am thankful.
 T S Eliot, The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock: "I have measured out my life with coffee spoons"
At sea, I learned how little a person needs, not how much. Robin Lee Graham
