Between age and chronic illness
And keeping pain away
My body is ashamed
It’s betrayed me in all ways.

Everyday it’s something
I thank God that I’m not twins.
Where is the old me, I muse,
Hidden in one of my chins?

Time, disease and treatment
Have all taken their toll
How are you surviving?
Are you on a downward roll?

Do your boobs hang low?
Can you swing them to and fro?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?

My ankles are swollen
My feet have grown flat
My rear end is gone
Somehow it’s gone splat.

I was sitting in the bathtub
When my thighs floated to the top
They say it’s just the fat content
When will this destruction stop?

I’m trying to apply the brakes
I’m on the downward slide
My innards and my outers
All make me want to hide.

I have to exercise
Lest I trip and fall
Other days I forget to do it
I think, I can’t recall.

My joints they are all aching
My skin is in a rash
I have to watch all foods I eat
Dinner’s boring, so’s my trash.

Everyday I have to trudge along
To keep these joints in shape
And a trip to any doctor
Involves so much red tape.

It seems to me this body
Is not really giving back
I invest in maintenance
And it just gives me flak.

Where’s all the respect
For all those vegetables I ate?
Don’t I get the credit?
How about a big rebate?

I wish for one lone day
I could just feel good
Come on, give me a break
I did everything I should.

Aren’t I supposed to love myself?
Some days it feels like hate.
Maybe I got the wrong body
‘Cause this one isn’t great.

That’s it, I found the answer.
I’ll just return this one.
Perhaps they will pro-rate it
Based on all the work I’ve done.

So I’m off to scan the Internet
Maybe eBay or Yahoo
I’ll exchange this body
And end this ballyhoo.
