This was inspired by an experience today that I will always remember. My only sister, Marge, was rewarded for her mental and physical suffering over many years. A malicious monster named Meniere's disease induced total loss of hearing in her left ear. A hearing aid in her right ear provided partial hearing over the years. Today she received reprieve from an embarrassing existence in the form of a tiny hearing aid the size of a Pinto bean. God Speed, Lil' Sis! Enjoy your miracle.

Tonight is the climax of our many dreams.

Marge got a gift from our King of all means.

A spiffy Beltone for her ear that is deaf

To amplify her hearing that has long been bereft

of conventional hearing she has missed for so long.

She had the feeling that she did not belong.

Now she is happy as a Queen on her throne.

She is part of the group and no more feels alone.

I am happy for her as you plainly can hear.

Her feeling of aloneness no longer has fear!
