Bring on the New Year, I can’t wait!
So give a resounding cheer!
I won’t hold back or hesitate,
And I won’t drink too much beer!
Last year my pancreas decided to end
It’s role in my glucose control…
Well, my wiggly organ friend,
Here’s one in your millimoles!
You thought that by this time that I
Would weep and mourn your loss,
But you were wrong and that is why
In THIS body I’m the boss!
I’ll tell you now that only when
You work like days of yore,
Why, then we’ll be good friends again –
In fact I’ll love you more!
Next year will be the year for ME,
I’ll have the upper hand!
Not in the thrall of devil ‘D’
But alive and feeling grand!
