Teaser Tuesdays: Poetic Musings of an Old, Fat Man by Harry E. Gilleland, Jr.

Currently reading poetry. Hence sharing this stanza from one of the poems in there. Hope you like it.


"We wait to give of our blood, our urine,

or to have our insides revealed.
We hope for good answers,
but for some it will be bad news.
For some, it will be routine.
For others, it will alter their life.
For the unfortunate, it will be death sentence.

~Page 100, The Assembled Waiters,

Poetic Musings of an Old, Fat Man by Harry E. Gilleland, Jr.
