Zimmer Frame

Displaying his balletic agility, and with
Perspiration violating his upper lip
Jim and his Zimmer are in harmony.
Man and machine bonded together.

A naturally graceful athlete Jim is
Finely tuned in mind and body
Ageing, an unnoticed triviality,
Eye-catchingly elegant he swings across the carpet

The Zimmer offers unheard of opportunities
Gliding into the dining room Jim sees
Resentful glances shouting silently and he
Thinks, “Really they’re applauding.”
