Doctor Parkinson was a funny man,
I know this as he makes me laugh at me
Walking slowly just as fast as I can,
My legs wobble and I can’t bend a knee.
I find it amusing very first thing
Missing my trouser leg time after time,
Falling back onto the bed then the floor.
Getting back up is a mountain to climb.
My eyes do not blink, my face just a stare,
I smile when I can to disguise my drip.
Did the good doctor make funny faces?
Would I laugh or keep a stiff lower lip?
Never mind it could be a lot, lot worse
The Neuro Re-habituation team
Has me exercising this way, then that.
Now I feel like the cat that got the cream.
