The Newsletter for the The University of Pa Parkinsons Center carries my poems. I'll post a few for you. Here is a new one about a rather new medication called Requip.

Ode To Requip

Beware my favorite time of day
I give this little warning
When colors of the rainbow
Grace my table every morning

And I get a bit emotional
At the very sight
Of these little friends who greet me
And fill me with delight

My pill box is a prism
Pinks and whites and reds and blues
Varied shapes among the pills
Of lovely pastel floral hues

I don't like favoritism
But he's simply quite adorable
That little 5mg. Requip
Even though he's unaffordable

But money is no issue
When your heart is on the line
And my little blue Requip
Is my darling Valentine

They are also very lovely
Sinemet and Eldepryl
But no other one comes even close
To my favorite little pill

I take each one so lovingly
With water in a glass
But you'll notice that I always
Save my blue Requip for last!

YOU LITTLE DARLING!!

I care so much about you.
I'm sure I'm unequipped
to even come close to matching
the effect of your Requip.

But, I will do my darndest
to make your morning bright.
With me and Requip ..
you'll surely be alright.

Love you too. ~*Marge*~

Kevin
Forgetting is my downfall.
Thanks!

Marge
You little darling, you
Are you going to quip
About my blue requip?
Unless you are equipped
Best not try the quip

cause I'm too quick!

Love ya, Liz
