My body feels like a house of cards,
One little jiggle and it falls apart.
I guard each card so carefully…
Try to rest and exercise methodically.
I play a card for nutrition, a card for meds,
A card for up and down the steps,
A card for opening pills,
A card for juggling bills.
Can I play one card for laughing?
Before my next RA house comes crashing?
Give me some wiggle space with this disease,
And let me laugh, if you please.
