Lumps & Bumps

Lumps & Bumps

Wrinkles, lines, ache this, pain that;
And then the lumps, perplexing bumps
From nowhere, showing, growing,
Coming and not going.
You think cancer, other
Causes: worry, costs and doctors,
Signs and trends!
Will they never end?
These changes downward,
Foul, sour, dour, cowardly?
Unsightly forms informing us
Of beauty’s loss, of songs unsung,
Boss death and wretched other wrongs?
Lumps and bumps which must mean something;
Nature’s drowsing rousing.
