Listening to my Ear

A ringing in the ear
is all I ever hear;
with one and only pitch
it's the unitchable itch

A stone in the shoe
can simply be removed;
a pea in the mattress
is a First World problem too

But a ringing in the ear
determined not to clear;                                            
keeps a constant tone
like an aching in the bone

If it's hearing loss
as they say it likely is,
how ironic I hear it,
which is more than I ever did.
