I'm a Diabetic!!!

I wrote this poem as requested for the diabetics clinic at Sunfield Medical Centre Leeds, England.


 ~Sassy Annie's Sigs ~

I'm a diabetic, that's what they say I am;
My blood sugar count is under twenty four.
I'm working really hard to get it down a bit,
Yet each time it seems to grow a little more.

I started exercising while sitting in my chair;
Two hundred times I used the remote control.
I switched from channel to channel, then switched it back again,
No trouble, I foresee, with this new role!

I've cut down eating honey, trifle, jam and cakes;
Ten doughnuts don't seem much at breakfast time!
Lunch is so much better with fish and chips and bread,
Ten cans of beer a day is not a crime.

Listen diabetics to a humble honest man,
There's an easy way to have a lot of fun:
Eat lean and exercise but do not compromise,
Chicken, fruit and veg. are better than buns!!
