Finger-pricking chicken

It’s no fun having to test your blood 6 times a day!

Finger-pricking chicken

It’s not that I’m a chicken
I just hate that finger pricking,
And now the clock is ticking
Till it’s finger pricking time!

All the companies say they’re blameless,
‘For our lancets are quite painless’
But I think they are all shameless
For the feeling’s not sublime!

I could show them my contusions,
For that needle-sharp protusion
Causes pain that’s no illusion,
I feel sure that you’ll agree.

I know it sounds pathetic
But I’d like an anaesthetic!
Wish I wasn’t diabetic,
Then I’d really be pain-free!
