theres an old woman...

a survivor...
clinging to whatever shred of dignity she can still muster...
and then the lapses occur...
and she cant recall anything at all....

and there's a daughter...
trying desperately to take care of her...
(although the mother certainly hadn't 'mothered' in an 'up to snuff' manner in earlier times...)
but the arrogant, weakening, old woman
WON'T HEAR OF being robbed of her illusionary independence...
her ego is still FRONT and CENTER...

and there is dischord and dysfunction....
and misery...
and EGO....
and mounds of INDIGNATION....

and there are case workers....and examiners....and CPAs....
and there are Rabbis....and CEOs...and HASIDIM...

AND NOBODY can think of what to do to HELP these two individuals....
and the gap is growing wider....
and the anger is turning to RAGE....
and Popeye stopped eating that F**Kin' spinach THIRTY YEARS AGO !!!
and the meatloaf has most certainly congealed into white blobs of fatty matter...
and hopefully, one can sleep in a CADILLAC....

for he who reneges on his promise, is certain to RUE the day...

and so it goes...
