A Special Place in Hell

A verse from my broken heart about elder abuse

We might embellish truth at times
just verging on the grey
we add some drama, honestly,
the story’s fun that way.

We might receive some extra change,
who will it hurt? we’d say
we work as hard as that sales guy
we deserved a break that day.

My guide dog and I visit schools to raise awareness for sight loss; the kids’ questions make great stories! Plus, I love books and writing book reviews. 🇨🇦
