Laughter from my Perspective the other side of Prostate Cancer

Dear Trudy,

I am enclosing the material we discussed. I am an eighteen year prostate cancer survivor. In step with your blog “” I wrote the limericks over a period of several years post-surgery and radiation treatment. I did not observe humor in the hospital nor my urologist’s office, so I made an effort to give some laughter from my perspective to my doctors and their staff. I would recite a limerick to them about their treatment, exams, and their side effects of their efforts. I figured it was better to laugh that cry.

Some of these are pretty raw and exaggerated, which is the nature of limericks. They are pretty chronological in order and recorded for copy-right protection.

Please enjoy and smile,

Jim Yount
