Seniors Alphabet

Our new alphabet

A for arthritis,
B for bad back,
C is for chest pains. Perhaps cardiac?

D is for dental decay and decline,
E is for eyesight–can’t read that top line.

F is for fissures and fluid retention
G is for gas (which I’d rather not mention)
H high blood pressure [I’d rather have low)
I for incisions with scars you can show.

J is for joints, that now fail to flex

L for libido–what happened to sex?
Wait! I forgot about K!
K is for my knees that crack when they’re bent
(Please forgive me, my Memory ain’t worth a cent)

N for neurosis, pinched nerves and stiff neck
O is for osteo-and all bones that crack
P for prescriptions, I have quite a few
Give me another pill; I’ll be good as new!

Q is for queasiness. Fatal or flu?
R is for reflux–one meal turns into two

S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears
T for tinnitus–I hear bells in my ears
U is for urinary: difficulties with flow
V is for vertigo, that’s “dizzy”, you know.
W is worry, now what’s going ’round?
X is for X ray–and what might be found.

Y for another year I’ve left behind
Z is for zest that I still have my mind,
Have survived all the symptoms my body’s deployed,
And kept twenty-six doctors gainfully employed!!!

I wish You a day of Peace, Happiness and Joy!
