Wow - Everybody is so deeeep, and the poetry so poignant. Well, then there's me and I'm more in to never growing up, so I put a few randomly sorted bon mots together copying both Shakespeare and the Limerick style, if you can imagine the two styles together! (Sorry Bill).
I hope these three verses make someone smile... or worses.
See? I rhymes good!
With Apologies to Romeo...
Hark! What number through yonder display breaks!
Be it 2 (mmol/L) or 50 (mg/dL) and I be low,
Needing sweets to make a go -
Yet 10 (mmol/L) to 200 (mg/dL) makes me high,
And I must run to break the tide.
Hypo! Hyper! Wherefore art thou sweet balance?
Deny thy lows and refuse thy shots -
Or, if thou wilt not be balanced, dear blood
Then my fingertips shall forever bear spots!
Remembering our "Creator"
There once was a leader named Manny -
His way with tuD folk was uncanny.
He could win all our hearts
With his genuine smarts ...
One can never have too many Manny’s!
Remembering our "Healer"
There once was a medic named Banting -
His patients were sick and demanding.
He felt the allure
To fashion a cure
Without which we’d all be fermenting!
Hoping there's a "Silly" Section in the next 'No Sugar Added' edition.
