I’ve never been too dramatic.
I’m pro at making things look fantastic.
I’ve always looked at the bright side.
But, oh the things inside I hide.
When things go wrong, I’m told- be happy,
I’m not one for being too sappy,
There are worse things that can happen.
I’m cool when bad things come a tappin’
But then my ACL started a snappin’
Who d’a thunk this would ever happen?
I walk with a obvious limp
I am forever labeled a gimp.
This brace stays with me all the time,
Oh, how my life used to be sublime.
To shower I use a plastic bag.
And clipping my toenails is such a drag.
Everywhere I go this stays on.
My leg is straight when I use the john.
I wake every time I want to roll.
There’s not much one can say to consul.
I often feel like an old lady,
and people treat me like I’m a baby.
I have never had such bad luck.
But can I just say, this really does suck.
