A funny take on dealing with RA

How I deal with my RA

I'm not like Jake the Peg

With the extra leg

But I too go

Diddle iddle iddle um , as

My right foot goes straight

But the left turns left

I needn't search

For sewing accessories

My fingers are already

On pins and needles

You nasty pink onions

You have met your match in me

I shall not shed a single tear,

'Cos, My eyes are

As dry as the Thar

I have no need

For a heater in my room

My entire right leg

Is on fire, to keep me warm

When the pain numbs my will,

I could kill my self


Oh, I don't need a gun

I have my trigger finger.
