Wake from the dreamTo Adrian Manning's previous piece     It is the minor victories…..To Adrian Manning's next piece

in ancient Babylon the sick
were left outside the door
to receive advice from passers by
in my sickness I'll wait 
ready to listen  

knowing the one thing worse
than getting bad advice
from passers by
is when nobody comes
by at all
