Before you help others with theirs

Before you help others with theirs
. . .
Due to dementia
you wrote in your report
she could not or would not
follow therapy directions
But your covid mask covered your lips
and her hearing aids were broken
So you without ill intent missed reality
and did her an injustice
in life as in therapy
. . .
Take off your own mask first

:- Doug.
