Back Pain!


Fall OverI have spent much of the past week grumbling about my bad back. Now it is getting better I realise that although it hurt with movement, it was a minor inconvenience compared to the illness suffered with fortitude by by some. Apparently there is a phrase in common usage that applies to me: ‘Man Up!’. I resolve to enjoy my good health in future rather than complain about minor irritations…

Lying on the floor,
Looking at the ceiling,
I suddenly felt guilty,
About this most strange feeling!
I realised I didn’t ache,
No longer was in pain,
And very soon I’d be,
Back to normal again.
I suddenly felt lucky,
My illness had been sparse,
And the realisation dawned:
I was a pain in the arse!

Dedicated to all those who are ill this morning.
May you soon see comfort and relief from your pain and enjoy a Happy Monday.
With love from me.
