Diabetes Haikus

Today’s prompt asks us to “Write a haiku about your health focus. 5 syllables/7 syllables/5 syllables. Write as many as you like.”

Here is what I have…and I apologize for not telling you far far in advance that I am NOT a poet…(tho I did have a lot of fun writing these!):

For twenty long years
I have been diabetic
And it fricking sucks

I have Type 1, yo
It’s not the same as Type 2
But both are not fun

My pancreas does
Not make insulin for me
That’s why I have Frank

I need to change my
Infusion set because there
Is blood in my tube

Test strip confetti
Used test strips everywhere now
Look, they’re stuck to me!
