Radiotherapy

Like an exclusive club

they sit crutching one another,

wishing each other health

drinking water from plastic cups,

no Waterford crystal here,

just disposable  kidney bowls

hairless heads 

wrapped in flowered bandanas,

or home knitted bobble hats

wrought by loving fingers,

there is gentle charity

in each soft, weak smile

of comradery,

sympathy

and huge humanity.
