a funny rhyme :o))))


Just had this sent to me and thought that I would share it !!!

I thought it was funny hope you do too.:o))


A is for apple, and B is for boat,

that used to be right, but now it won’t float! Age before beauty is what we once said,

but let’s be a bit more realistic instead.


A’s for arthritis;
B’s the bad back,
C’s the chest pains, perhaps car-di-ac?

D is for dental decay and decline,
E is for eyesight, can’t read that top line!

F is for fissures and fluid retention,

G is for gas which I’d rather not mention.

H high blood pressure—I’d rather it low;
I for incisions with scars you can show.

J is for joints, out of socket, won’t mend,
K is for knees that crack when they bend.

L ’s for libido, what happened to sex?
M is for memory, I forget what comes next.

N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low;
O is for osteo, bones that don’t grow!

P for prescriptions, I have quite a few, just give me a pill and I’ll be good as new!

Qis for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
R is for reflux, one meal turns to two.

S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears,
T is for Tinnitus; bells in my ears!

U is for urinary; troubles with flow;
V for vertigo, that’s ‘dizzy,’ you know.

W for worry, now what’s going ’round?
X is for X ray, and what might be found.

Yfor another year I’m left here behind, Z is for zest I still have— in my mind!

I’ve survived all the symptoms, my body’s deployed,

and I’m keeping twenty-six doctors fully employed!
