Bob and "Al" aren't doing well
remember Thanksgiving when they fell?
Well it turns out "they" tore their rotor cuff again
and "their" knee well who knows, but Sheri just can't win
But Sheri knows from experience surgery is just not a good choice
it messes with "Al" then Sheri becomes even more of "their" voice.
Last surgery at the hospital one thing led to another
and Sheri wound up feeling even less like a wife, and more like "their" mother
Sheri could not leave "their" side, for fear what "they'd "say
The nurses did not understand that "Al" had taken over and that Bob went away ...
Sheri is struggling , she doesn't understand
How to keep Bob in one piece
Without staying glued to "Al's" hand ....
The doctors can fix the shoulder all over again
But if Bob doesn't come back then nobody wins...
but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm."
