Self Preservation

















Self Preservation


"Edna, where's the bloody salt?" his irate indignation
Although the doctor stated: "Please consume with moderation"
She handed him the shaker, gave no voice to reservation
For wisdom speaks in silence and it's called self preservation


Thank you (again) to Magpie Tales for the image.

I like the idea of her not giving him the salt for his health and well being, then giving him the salt for her emotional health and well being.

Wow! Well written, but scary!

lightverse said...

Elaine - that's what I meant by scary. It all depends on interpretation, but to have to be in that position in the first place...

Elaine said...

I didn't think of it that way, but you're right. Oh the irony. Salt, the original (and the best) preservative is killing him, but saving her! Scary indeed!
