I am at the age and stage where I seem to take more and more medications on a daily basis. So, I wrote a poem about it!
I get up for my breakfast and reach out for my pills
A dosset box is piled high, to manage all my ills
There’s pills to take for aches, there’s pills to take for pain
There’s pills to take for Parkies that’s lurking in my brain
I used to have my Parkies pill and that was only one
But now I’m taking two of them, ain’t life so much fun?
There’s more to take for aching that’s lurking in my joints
From head to toe I seem to ache in oh so many points
And then there is a little pill that I can barely see
The little pill I take each day that helps control my pee!
There’s such a list of different pills, that fix my daily battle
I swear if you would shake me, that I would surely rattle
Three times a day, then I must stop and pop them in my gob
I take them in a dosset box and have some at my job
There’s Medications large and there’s medications small
Three times a day I have to stop and pause to take them all
Although it seems a chore at times this pill based life routine
Without their help, I wouldn’t cope, more symptoms would be seen
So, I will carry on this way and take what does me good
So I can life my life the way I always hoped I could.
