The Health Scare

The Health Scare

I’m living with Uncertainty and Fear.
I need to say their names and make them rhyme.
Two monsters. I can’t make them disappear.
I’m living with Uncertainty and Fear.
Though abstract nouns are not a good idea,
And abstract nouns with capital letters, a crime,
I’m living with Uncertainty and Fear.
It helps to say their names and make them rhyme.

Wendy Cope, “Family Values”.
