In normal times we take for granted
How easy is it to swallow
A bitter pill
A sweet compliment
But when you are just laid up in bed
Propped up by pillows
And your muscles slowly constrict
To make it hard to swallow
Just a drop of water
The throat is parched ,
The muscles tired
Having worked for years
The time has come for them to stop.
That is the hardest pill to swallow.

Swallowing enhances the eating experience and what a tragedy it must be to not be able to swallow.
