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!
