Dr. Seuss’s MS Poem


If only Dr. Seuss would learn to curse

when the multiple sclerosis symptoms are worser and worse.

I want to bitch and scream and cry

Goddam it to hell oh why oh why

the spasms, the aching, the paralysis oh my.

The brain fogginess and slogginess and bitchiness

I just want to move and groove and be who’ve

I’ve meant to be and not this thingamajig

that  crumbles and rumbles along with rust in my pipes

Who grumbles and mumbles with complaints and gripes

about this body that used to be fine

and now I don’t recognize that it even is mine.

so I’ll pick myself up by the scruff of the neck

without giving a damn or giving a heck.

What the flickety, flackity, fluckity, fluck.

maybe I just shouldn’t give a big ol’ flying fuck

but I keep cursing along with with this dastardly disease,

the bastard, the brute, this putrid if you please.

And if the cursing helps me get through each day

then I’ll just keep doing that and I’ll leave you to pray.
