Stiff in the Morning
Oh my goodness, is all that can be said,
Awoken this morning totally stiff in bed,
It is just so damningly annoying,
To be this hard and throbbing!
But try l must to arrange my day,
So as to accommodate this new way,
Admittedly it was quite stiff last night,
But l thought warm bed, and all would be right,
Today, but alas, l find myself in a mess,
With this stiffened awkwardness!
I mean it makes getting dressed,
A life and death situation of stress,
Have tried banging and pounding it hard,
To see if it will ease its gripping guard,
But no amount of rubbing and beating,
Will make the damn thing contemplate releasing!
Oh dear, what will become of me,
With the stiffness so visible for others to see,
Oh well, l guess it makes for no odds,
Slipping over as l did, has consequences …
…for all parts of ones’ bod,
And my extremely hard and stiff back,
Will just have to remedy itself to get on track!
