A Silver Lining to Every Cloud ...
We were feeling kind of down
we were feeling kind of blue
He'd been diagnosed with disintegrating joints
and he'd been made redundant too.
So after days sitting at home,
just staring at four walls
we agreed to go to the cinema
to try to forget about it all.
But the seats were low and soft,
and his joints seized up and stuck,
I had to pull him with all my strength
and pulled a muscle myself - which sucked.
The film had not been good,
and cost us all our spends,
so we were feeling sort of glum
when we bumped into an old friend.
"I haven't seen you for an age,
how are things at work?"
He asked poor hubby who was limping still
from being wrenched from his seat with a jerk.
"I got made redundant," hubby told the guy,
"but there's more to life than wealth."
His pal slapped him on the back and said
"Well at least you've got your health."
We really shouldn't have been so mean
we really should have tried
But we both just looked at each other
and laughed until we cried.
The old friend stood there for a bit
while we both laughed like drains.
But we couldn't stop, so he turned and left
and we never saw him again.
Well we had no income and he didn't have his health
but it could have been worse - like a tumour,
and no matter how bad things ever get
we've always got our sick sense of humour.
