Peaceful cabin

"If You'd Only Help Me To"
by Rex Tyler

The dreaded weed!

Where does it lead

To path's beyond

The sun

Mucus chokes me

Day and night

Oh! what can now be done?

I sang once

Like a nightingale

But now sound like a rook

I once could run a marathon

But now I dare not look

I cough and cough each morning

I know now things aren't right

My breathing is atrocious

Especially at night


Yes I have them

Medication too

But I would give up all of this

If you'd only help me to
