chatting with my elderly neighbours
who have ongoing concerns with cancer
we debated if next time they fall ill
whether I should quickly call a nurse

or wait a while then call the hearse
none want to die in a hospital
with carefully audited meals
prefer to die in their own home

but often in rural areas we don’t
have access to hospices or home care
so the choices are very limited
any thoughts on how you prefer to die?
