Rest, Relax and Enjoy

Happy Bunny-Funny.

Wednesday 5th March 2014.

This is my fourth and final poem that I wrote while in Southampton General Hospital. I hope you will enjoy it. I wrote them from my true feelings at the time. Enjoy!

Happy Bunny-Funny


Cannot be a happy bunny,

Cannot always be that funny

Smiling becomes harder each day

Laughing, oh man no way.

The audience faces are blank.

Cheeks and chins just sank,

Smiling no, you must refrain.

Humour forbidden never again,

No jokes not a word spoken,

Lying still waiting to be woken.

Every now and then a smile breaks through.

‘Get out! get out you’ someone shouts.

This way of life we can now mourn.

Laughter and joy once again born.

We can now be a happy bunny

We can now always be funny.

  3. Hey, Gerry, I like the sound of the last lines of this one. It’s beginning to sound like the old Gerry. But I’m wondering if I missed some. I read only one other poem that you wrote while in the hospital. Did you post more than two?

    • Hey thank you Kj, appreciate your view as always,, you know me I love being a little controversial, or is it plain nuttiness or sarcasm.. a bit of both I guess. Welcome always. 😉
