Today’s poem is a semi-autobiographical story about a man with essential tremor. This neurological condition affects hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, making it difficult to perform the simplest of tasks. I have the condition, and if I can laugh about it, why shouldn’t you? If you want to know more, just Google ‘essential tremor.’
The poem is called ‘Shaken not stirred,’ and can be found on http://www.hobbospoems.com in the Monologues menu.
