Another Parkinsons poem about some of the things that happen in public,sudden freezing of the muscles, slurred speech, etc.
For my part, I've had some difficult times, but if you saw me, you would never know the desease was there
Thanks to my little friend Requip!I'm still my beautiful little old self
I'm Smarter Than You Thunk!
Don't tell me I can't bring a friend
He's quite attached to me
For I am really part of him
And he is part of me
Don't tell me that I walk too slow
It's the nature of my friend
Will you still be in a hurry
When your path is near its end?
Don't think because my speech is slurred
That I must be a drunk
For I can see right through your smirk
I'm smarter than you thunk!
Don't condemn my sudden standstill
In the middle of the mall
For you're the one tailgating me
And that's against the law!
Don't ever think I can't keep up
Don't answer with a quip
For I will then be forced to show you
My one upmanship!
For I'm keener on my love of life
I'm faster to the flower
I walk with much more pride of self
And inner strength and power
My heart can clearly say the words
Of poetry's most loving song
My spirit dances in the fields
My friend just dances right along
I'm faster and I'm stronger
And I'm smarter than you thunk
So please remember this or else
This class of life you'll flunk!
