Today, Poetry Day

The image says it all

needles piercing the skin wall

from fingertips to big fat thighs

is what I’m thinking through my retinopathied eyes

What makes this condition so unique?

is it the chronicness of needle dependence?

The fear of injections and the hype of stigma?

Or the stats of death associated?

is this not a condition conditioned by greed?

The food industry says do not underfeed

Doctors say pay me cash, but don’t overfeed

Diabetes is exactly what the cash creators need…

We need to stand strong

Play real life survivor without technology

and show the world

how natural nature was intended to be

The human species has evolved into parasitic survival

by causing dependency leading to vulnerability,

Diabetes makes you weak they think

Nope, uniqueness unified makes us strong!
