I'll never be poet laureate, but I cobbled this together from my thoughts when I was wondering what had happened to my body a month or so ago...

My get up and go has just got up and gone!
And when she's not here it's so hard to get on.
I'm sure if you see her, you'll know that she's mine,
She's still in her fifties, but acts ninety-nine.
She's wearing a jacket two sizes too tight,
So lifting her arms is a bit of a fight.
Her skirt is a pencil, reall snug at the knees.
It hinders her walking. (Small strides ladies please!)
On her feet there are clogs. They're leaden or wood.
They're great when she's sprinting (if only she could!)
Her eyes are dark circled, they're tired, looking old;
And during the P.M. she shivers with cold.
A lobster with pincers hangs from her left arm;
It nibbles and squeezes, and needs calming-balm.
Once during the night-time a bad fairy came,
And tipped grated glass into joints! She's to blame!
From that moment on my poor get up and go
Was injured and hurting and dog-tired and low.
My get up and go is now tender throughout.
She's really not worthy of raving about.
Not much of a get up and go, you'll agree.
She's all that I've got, so please send back to me.
My get up has gone, and my go's in reverse.
I must get her back or things sure will get worse.
My get up and go, it just got up and went!
Did anyone notice the way that she went?
