#DBlogWeek ’14 – Day 2 – Under the spleen


Are you ready, kids?

(Aye, aye, captain!!)


Who lives in a pancreas under the spleen?


It’s lazy and useless and spiteful and mean!


If blood sugar nonsense is something you wish


You’ve got diabetes and drink like a fish!



Dye-a-beet-ees, high-low Bee-Gees,

Carb-hy-dreet-ees Dye-a…. beet-ees!

(Remember – I have a first-grade son at home with a favorite TV show.  Also, have you ever tried to find a word that rhymes with diabetes?)

Today’s topic: This year, Diabetes Blog Week and TuDiabetes are teaming up to bring out the poet in you! Write a poem, rhyme, ballad, haiku, or any other form of poetry about diabetes. After you’ve posted it on your blog, share it on the No Sugar Added® Poetry page on TuDiabetes, and read what others have shared there as well!
