Menopause Three






Hot flush

flash up

pressure point

no stop

heat burns

brain turns

into mush

with flush.

Heart pounds

skewed sounds

head throbs

stifled sobs

anger flashes

teeth gnashes

temper flares

no one dares

talk to Mum

‘til it’s done.

Hot flush

has gone.

Oh the joys

of menopause!
