My dear friend,
Feels in my heart I have known her lifetimes,
Two Octobers ago Penny was predicted dead by October,
How dare the Fuckers,
Penny worked over time for fifteen years,
Had Covid twice,
Worked ER Catholic hospital in Waterloo Iowa,
Worked last five years on a cane,
Staff knee replacements were put back,
She had a hip replacement,
She was needed and returned to work early,
Pagan ring barer like myself,
Placed on temporary disability because she asked if temporary she could use a walker,
After a month of a 75% less pay,
The hospital had done Nothing to bring her back to work,
They could have had the paperwork done to place her on full time disability,
Penny had to do a four hour test that factory workers have to show there strengths to return to their hard labor,
Penny is a secretary,
No one else who works nights had to take this four hour strength test,
Then they said Penny a 59 year old faithful employee has no rights to unemployment because until terminated Penny us still there to toy with,
And not one lawyer in Iowa will step up to take those people on,
This week Penny had Covid again!
She has been told she now has to be certified to take down mentally disturbed individuals!
They continue to rewrite her job MOS,
She was never written up for anything like my baby sister at Waukon Iowa’s Court House.
Now everyday she says how she might be dead by October!
I pray to the Goddess she is not,
I know she is in pain,
But my life is fuller with her in it,
