Pain


One day it's my waist,
Next day it's my knees.
I have trigger finger,
It hurts when I sneeze.

My joints are all creaking,
My back's out all day.
I keep popping pills,
And I smell like Bengay.

Oh well, c'est la vie,
What else can I say?
God just give me the strength,
To get up everyday.

    Only people of a certain age group could appreciate this poem. Sadly, I'm one of them, haha. Good job describing what we go through daily. (Report) Reply
