Senior Cits Alphabet

The Senior Citizens Alphabet

A for arthritis,
B for bad back,
C is for chest pains.
Perhaps cardiac? 

D is for dental replacements and decline, 
E is for eyesight--can't read that top line? 
F is for fissures and fluid retention 
G is for gas (which I'd rather not mention.)

H high blood pressure (I'd rather have low)
I for incisions with scars you can show.
J is for joints, that now fail to flex
L for libido--what happened to sex?

Wait! I forgot about K! 
K is for my knees that crack when they're bent (Please forgive me, my memory ain't worth a cent) ?
N for neurosis, pinched nerves and stiff neck
O is for osteo- and all bones that crack.

P for prescriptions, I have quite a few
Give me another pill; I'll be good as new!
Q is for queasiness. Wine or flu? 
R is for reflux-- one meal turns into two 

S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears?
T for tinnitus--I hear bells in my ears.
U is for urinary: difficulties with flow 
V is for vertigo, that's "dizzy", you know.

W is worry, now what's going 'round? 
X is for X ray-- and what might be found. 
Y for another year I've left behind
Z is for zest that I still have my mind! 

Have survived all the symptoms my body's deployed,
And kept twenty-six doctors gainfully employed!
