The poetry of Kris Mercer


Once is enough

"It was only the once".
Was all she would say.
"Only the once".
As they wheeled her away.

She was allowed to go home.
There she would die.
All her friends called round.
To say, "Goodbye".

They all knew the reason.
But the memory fades.
Please don't forget
you too, can catch Aids.
