Before you tell me what to do,
Just spend one day in my shoes.
You say exercise more, don’t eat this or that.
Which makes me feel lazy or just fat.
Yes, I’ve tried your vitamins…
Your instant cures and bee pollen.
I fall for everything you say,
Then add it to my bills to pay.
I stuck my knuckles in hot wax,
I can not drink wine to relax.
This pain is 24 hours a day,
There is no escaping my RA.
Just spend one day in my shoes,
Even one hour or minute would do.
You might not suggest another solution…
But instead show mercy on my condition.
If you ‘really’ want to help me out…
Just give me something to laugh about.
