The headache lore thatI have heard
Through more than fifty years,
Could fill a book shelf, maybe,
And bring us all to tears.
The doctors tell us what they think
That we should take and do,
And we believe because we hope
And pray it will come true.
"Go fishin' more, and lose some weight."
One doctor always told 'em.
Another said: Well, while you're here
We'll just clean out your colon!
Go out with friends and laugh a lot;
Don't lose your sense of humor.
Your MRI will let us know
If you have a brain tumor.
Control your pain with bio feed,
And it will go away.
Acupuncture can help a lot--
But, will insurance pay?
Giving up caffine, chocolate, cheese,
Nutra sweet, MSG,
Nicotine and alcohol
Will make you cluster free.
An adjustment will relax your nerves
And bring a pain-free life.
And, by the way, did you have these
Before you met your wife??
Well-meaning folks are on the phone
Sharing healing stories,
While on the floor I writhe and groan,
Throwing up suppositories.
The pills are more than I can count;
You know them all by name--
Ingest, inject, inhale, exhale,
Hoping to stay sane.
And so, I stagger to my room,
Darkened like a cave.
Sometimes with pillows for my head;
Sometimes to rant and rave.
If there's a cure just let me know;
My life won't be the same.
But, I don't care who finally gets
The credit or the blame. :>)
