Back Pain


My back today is killing me, I need an x-ray.

Seems I requested of you folks down south,

To keep this cold away, I should have used my loud-mouthโ€ฆ

I got on a pain patch,

To my lower back it is attached,

I took two of my pain pills,

I cannot seem to with them in my system, focusโ€ฆ

Is an x-ray just more hocus pocus?

I felt this pain yesterday,

many yesterdays, of bleak hopelessness

oh how i wish it would go away

and leave me in wholeness.

Oh me.
