Barefut -- Sisters In Rhyme

Posted by CFMBabs , 09 October 2008 · 687 views

Oh! Barefut you are too kind
You leave my poetry well behind
I guess we have the very same wit
We both can write our little bit

I'm glad it's more then pain we share
Sisters in arms with much to bear
What have we got if not in text
What little ache will we have next

Life is like a box of chocs
I heard that somewhere on the box
I confess I know all your woe
And wish for us both, it would go

My neck is hard to move and twist
Won't swivvel like in the Excorcist!
My rheumatologist thinks it moves just fine
It's Just a bit of wear over time

I'm 40 something and knackered too
My knees feel like they're stuck with glue
My back won't bend when I want it to
And if I have a cold it's more like flu

If I have a cough it's a hospital bed
And that is something that I dread
Strapped to a machine to keep me fed
How does one keep their head!

Oh listen to me -- how I complain
I'm off on a tangent again
When other folk they are much worse
And suffer greatly from this curse

At least I can say I only have CREST
And only 4 I have confessed
R for Raynauds that makes me numb
E for esophageal that effects my tum
S for sclero that makes me sick
And T for those spots that come so quick

So Barefut, thank you for the quote
To know my problems are not remote
To know a friend is always there
And we have so much that we can share!
