Island Living
 by Alan Catlin

There are certain
real disadvantages
to living on the Island

It doesn't pay
to be ill here
or to need any
kind of constant
medical attention

I spoke to a lady
on the ferry once
                                    about how it worked
out for her

Her husband had
Alzheimer's though
she never worried
about him taking
the dog out for
his daily walk

She knew that
the dog would
always bring her
husband back
