An Ailment for all Occasions
What the Heck
I went to a doctor the other day,
because my back was in such pain,
He took one look at me and then said,
Fibromyalgia, it's all so plain.
After a trip to his pediatrician,
my neighbor's kid got the bad news,
"It's 'Juvenile Fibromyalgia', running rampant",
and a new kind of Blues.
My Chihuahua howled all the night long,
so my Vet gave me the cause,
"Canine Fibromyalgia" was diagnosed,
and it had started in his paws.
When I got a bill, for my pet bird,
a talking parrot from the store, was he,
"Fibromyalgia, Fibromyalgia, awk,awk",
now was all he could say to me!
All aches and pains, that we may have,
from our heads, down to our toes,
This problem labeled by a weird imagination;
the more its heard, it grows.
If we have hiccups, hemorrhoids,
or a tooth ache, we got it in our report,
"It's 'Dental Fibromyalgia', all so simple,
less sweets, and brush more, sport!"
At my funeral I can hear the pastor preach,
as the mournful hymn is sung,
Poor soul, died of a blood clot thrown,
by 'Fatal Fibromyalgia', into his lung.
My autopsy will read, " cause of death,
is a mystery, no reason or a rhyme.",
I'll know it's a stroke or heart attack,
if Fibromyalgia is heard one more time!
