A Prostate Lament I, who once measured out my life with coffee spoons [1], 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. [1] T S Eliot, The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock: "I have measured out my life with coffee spoons" Sailor 28/11/09 At sea, I learned how little a person needs, not how much. Robin Lee Graham
