Crabbit Old Woman

Crabbit Old Woman:

"What do you see, what do you see?
Are you thinking, when you look at me-
A crabbit old woman, not very wise,
Uncertain of habit, with far-away eyes,
Who dribbles her food and makes no reply
When you say in a loud voice,
I do wish you'd try.
Who seems not to notice the things that you do
And forever is loosing a stocking or shoe.
Who, unresisting or not; lets you do as you will
With bathing and feeding the long day is fill.
Is that what you're thinking,
Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes,
nurse, you're looking at me. " . . . .

thank you Josephine Bristol_and_Somerset

I have just been watching Esther Rantzen on BBC tv "How to have a Good Death" - Google Search
