Florida's Foreverly Shores
At the very best it's therapeutic
Easy to do, not much to it
Grab a thought and just hang on
until the pain of it is gone~
Balm the nerves with anodyne rhyme
Shucks, I do it all the time
It's about all that I can do
until the Chiropractor is through~
Then it's time to begin
anodyne rhyming, once again~
In triple dose of word-sublime
I'm gonna take my anodyne~
*Still suffering intense back and hip pain
from my fall at your friendly neighborhood Cracker Barrel Restaurant*
~Ironic that the Word-of-the-Day is just the medicine I need~
