I will return to ‘normal service’, with more incoherent ramblings and disrespecting well-known art masterpieces.
There is also the nail-biting and completely miss-able final installment of the adventures of the world’s least helpful superhero – Procrastination Man.
Hypochondria haunts me, a lifelong curse,
Whatever you’ve had, I’m sure I’ve had worse,
Looking up symptoms, always obsessing,
The problems seem real, sometimes depressing,
An ache or a tingle, a spot or a pain,
Google the answers, make sure it’s germane,
My Doctors grow weary, try calming my fears,
‘It’s all in your head,’ Oh I’ve heard that for years,
I tried meditation, said ‘Om’ and relaxed,
But after ten minutes, the panic was back,
It might be genetic, or maybe it’s wheat?
I could give up the gluten, eat organic beet,
Try smoothies from kale, despite tasting grim,
Go on a fast, or perhaps join a gym,
It’s so self-involved, neurotic and sad,
It’s time I that learned, to be a little less mad.
