Cranky Old Man

Iwas reading through status’ on Facebook the other day when I came across this poem supposedly written by a man who had died in the geriatric ward of an Australian hospital. I have no idea if this is true or whether it is just one of those internet legends that do the rounds from time to time. The story goes that a nurse was asked to clear out his room after he had passed away and she came across this written on a piece of paper. She showed it around the hospital and the quality and content so impressed the staff that someone copied it. Next thing you know someone posted it online and the poem went global.
