One potato, two potato,
three potato, four….
Why didn’t I buy a food processor
when I was at the store?
I do not like cooking, not one little bit,
it causes me more pain than I will admit.
Preparing the food causes me grief,
my hands just give up – before the rest of me.
Hash-browns from scratch I can no longer do.
My hands were in pain before potato number two.
Many things will suffer as a result of this disease,
cooking tops the list, right up there with these knees.
