Patience Patient

Try, try and try again

As William Hickson wrote

Inspiring others to succeed

But should we just blindly agree

Get straight back in the saddle

When you’ve fallen off they say

Never mind the danger

Ignore it, stand up and say

“I will not be defeated”

If you do you’ll be seen as soft

But refusing to go on and on

When the dangers very clear

Is to put in very simply

A load of bollocks dear

Of course you can carry on

Fighting on ignoring warnings

Until finally you come at last

To the prize for your patience

The ultimate folly your reward

In a hospital as a patient
