Migraine Poem

Post  Paradox on Tue Mar 30, 2010 8:08 pm

And Time Goes On

Shhh, Joanie.
Grandma's in bed with a sick headache.
Cold cloths
in a dark room.
Trying to find relief.

Shhh, Joanie.
Mommies in bed with her nerves.
She takes a valium.
Cold cloths
in a dark room.
Trying to find relief.

Aren't I the lucky one.
Triptans, anti-depressants,
anti-convulsants,
to ravage my body.
Yet in the end...

Shhh, Jimmy.
I'm in bed with a migraine.
I take a vicoden.
Cold cloths
in a dark room
trying to find relief.

Mom, I have a headache.
Oh Jimmy, my heart is breaking.
Let me get you a cold cloth...

Wonderful poem! Brought tears to my eyes realizing how migraines go on through the ages and generations and how they affect our families.

Hope you entered it in the contest. You're so talented.

Thanks to your encouragement, I just entered the contest. I usually only write goofy poetry. My favorite is one I wrote several years ago. My son was in Jr. High basketball and someone wrote a letter to the editor complaining that the only kids who got playing time were the kids whose family was "somebody" and whose parents kissed the coaches butt. My initial reaction was to Hubby was "Hot damn, Honey! We're not white trash anymore!"

I wrote this poem for the Coach. Be forewarned, it's rather earthy.

Notes From Down Under

While reading the paper
yesterday aft,
I learned I reside
in the crack of your ass.

Lodging is cramped,
there are hoards in your rear,
all parents of players
have colonized there.

Since we are down here
we thought you should know
your prostate is fine
and your hemorrhoids hang low.

Your colon is clear
though you could use some more roughage
realizing, of course,
this won't improve on our suffrage.

Have pity on us,
we've a favor to ask,
take care when you're wiping
your suburbanized ass.
