A Patient's Plea
.
Don’t shout at me, I’m sick but I’m not deaf.
Don’t talk about me, speak to me;
I’m the one who knows best how I feel.
Don’t have a party around my bed;
I’m really not able for it.
Don’t try to solve the nation’s problems
at my bedside; The Dáil is the place for that.
Don’t tell me all your medical problems;
I’ve enough of my own right now.
Don’t stay too long please; five minutes will do fine.
Thanks for coming. And for going.
Don’t buy out the shop on your way in;
There’s only so much the locker can hold.
Don’t whisper at the doorway;
It makes me feel there’s something terribly wrong.
Don’t exaggerate my condition when you’re telling the neighbours;
I will eventually die. But not yet.
Don’t feel you have to rush to see me while I’m in hospital;
A visit at home will be grand.

where can you find the ideal priest?

If he preaches over ten minutes, he is too long winded.

If his sermon is short, he is too easy going.

If the parish funds are low, he is a bad business man.

If he visits his parishioners, he's nosey.

If he doesn't, he's snobbish.

If he has raffles and fancy fairs, he is bleeding the people.

If he doesn't, the parish is lacking in social life.

If he takes time in Confession, he's too slow.

If he doesn't, he is not a good confessor.

If he starts Mass on the minute, his watch is fast.

If he's a bit late, he's holding up the congregation.

If he re-decorates the Church, he's spending too much money.

If he doesn't, he's letting it run down.

If he's young, he's not experienced.

If he's old, he should retire.

If he dies, there will never be his equal again.

What a Life !
