Half life

You know you should care.

That it is important.

But you have no energy

or desire to continue

to keep nagging,

cleaning up after

and in general caring for another human being.

They can feed themselves

now that they are older.

Baths continue to be a fight

so the smell becomes familiar

until eventually it goes unnoticed.

This includes the caregiver.

Should a guest even arrive

outside is the only hosting venue currently available.

It is slow slide

but now a days it does not take much

to start rolling down the inclined hill.
