Wednesday’s Nursing


A few months ago
I had 14 warts on the thumb
and fingers on my right hand.
I painted them frequently

with liquid iodine
then brushed them
with a hard small brush.
Now they have all disappeared

Invalid’s Bed

In making a bed
it is a great help to mark

the centre of the top hem
of the blankets

with coloured wool;
one can then see at a glance

whether the blanket
is in the right position

without having to go to the foot
of the bed to see both sides.
