Asthma Versus Back Pain

She is sick of her asthma and backpain
Two rivals fighting to board her body
Their fight only gives her life immense pain
And she is sad, dejected and moody
Each one around gives an advice grody

Pillows' mountain
Albeit soothes and makes her feel free
She is sick of her asthma and backpain
As hits backpain next to decree
No loss of pain

Wheezing asthma, acute back pain twosome
Beating her confused to sit or lie plain
Peaceless days run nighted only gruesome
Over done highly with long deadly strain
She is sick of her asthma and backpain
