How am I today?

It's natural to ask yourself,

How do I feel today?

You might be feeling not so good,

Or perhaps you're happy and gay.

But watch that you don't go too far

In assessing how you are.

By measuring this and measuring that

And Googling wide and far.

Obsession with your state of health,

Is not a healthy thing.

In addition to the ails you have

Another it will bring.

So concentrate on feeling good,

Leave the rest to them that know.

Let them worry if something's wrong,

As through life you happily go.

Google is your bestest friend,

Mis-use it at your peril.

It could really blight your life,

As it did with my friend Beryl.

(Actually my friend's name was Fred but that didn't rhyme.)
