When I walk downstairs my knees creak
Where I broke my collarbone, there is a slight tinge
And where I fractured my back, there is a stiffness
When I raise my arm, I can feel the arthritis
My hips burn when I sit too long
And my ribs are still a bit tender from being fractured
My broken nose has healed, but I snore at night
I can’t bend the toes or fingers I broke
And the concussions have left me with headaches
Bourbon gives me heartburn
So I have switched to gin
I think my hearing and hair
are going — .
You really didn’t mean “How are you? ”
You were just being polite?
