Well, I done got it that gall bladder disease
couldn't hold it off till I reached mid-80's!
this stone is a big one on that you can bet
tell me it's easy, simple ~ no sweat!!
will I feel different
will I still function
seems I've come to a
hang in there liver ~ hang in there spleen
pancreas, kidneys ~ stay healthy and clean
I'll need all my parts the rest of my life
no more of taking me 'under the knife'
well ... except for my right hip
it needs a new joint
if I want to stay active
and that's the whole point!
gall-bladder's gone bad, my doctor has said
it's the female, fat, forty syndrome we dread!
time for deep sleep, a few tiny incisions ..
another of life's more intriguing revisions!!
