From Suddenly Senior Reader, The Bensonhurst Poet

Hi I'm Cal Begun, the Bensonhurst Poet. I wrote the following when I underwent radiation for Prostate Cancer 2 years ago. I think other seniors will appreciate my message.

LIVING WITH CANCER

By CAL BEGUN

L et's face it, having cancer is never any fun

I t can be a nightmare for almost everyone

V erily, it's the fear of it that will do the most damage to you

I f you can control that, you'll live longer and happier, too

N ever stay with "Crepe Hangers" with their tales of woe

G et together with optimists and keep yourself on the go


WITH God's blessings you're sure to get well


C all on Him, He'll listen to what you have to tell

A nd with the latest technology better cures are always being found

N ow you'll find the one that will get you around

C are for yourself and keep yourself looking good too

E very day enjoy the pleasures that will come to you

R emember, your fondest dreams will be coming true

ODE TO WAITRESSES

By CAL BEGUN

W aiting on tables, you've got to be fast

A nd if you're not, you're not going to last.

I don't see how you take all that guff

T hen you catch heck if you bring the wrong stuff.

R emembering what diners order is something I can't do

E ven so, we always expect that from you.

S o, everyone please treat waitresses with some civility

S ince it's apparent that they work at the lowest servility.

E ach time you order now, do it with class

S ay thanks for her service and leave alone her ass!
