Subject: A new alphabet for older people A new alphabet for older people A's for arthritis; B's the bad back, C's the chest pains, Perhaps car-d-iac? 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 is 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 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, I'll be good as new! Q is 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 Tintinitus, 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. Y for 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!!!
