A quick poem about my day


Today

Well today I woke up just like yesterday
Pain in my back stiff as old Nick go downstairs pain meds and coffee to make
Its 6am really cold outside a snowy hoar frost creeps like a tide.
Waiting for the pain hoping it will subside it never does but hope it will in the bye and bye.
Pick up my guitar the only thing to do is sing away my back pain blues, yeah woke up this mornin got the back pain blues yeah woke this mornin got the back pain blues
I got spasms up my backbone, they hurt like hell....my only release is to goddam yell, oh got the back pain blues, but you won beat me because I got my sense of humour and it sets me free........
