And all those muscles that I had last summer
seem to have melted int (just like) butter
now seem to be made out of spongy lard.
have the consistency of spongy lard.
I’m worried that I may have gout;
And when I stare into the mirror
my grandad’s face gives me a shiver
stares when I look into the mirror,
My grandad’s face gives me a shiver,
staring back from the bathroom mirror;
and my other problems make me fear the worst.
I’m not on the conk.
I’ll still live long.
Life’s too short; it’s not a game.
Step into my pain.
