|my spine is a jerk
when i turn left
my neck says the F word
tells the nerves
to let me have it
my lower half giggles
bullying a disc
i feel it slip
then there's my hip
i've named swamp donkey
all of this
a little plyo made it stiff
is the pits
i think i'll eat some waffles

^ nice try
what is plyo?
maybe 'my lower half giggles'
maybe 'all just because'
line 7 is a little weak, but so is your spine right now so i'll forgive it this time. :))
nice to have fun with stuff off the cuff!
plyo is short for plyometrics
here is what wiki says:
Plyometrics, also known as "jump training" or "plyos", are exercises based around having muscles exert maximum force in as short a time as possible, with the goal of increasing both speed and power. This training focuses on learning to move from a muscle extension to a contraction in a rapid or "explosive" way, for example with specialized repeated jumping.
plyos can be definitely bully a back when one has over trained. so plyos are jerks as well.
^ oops, where did that 'b' come from?
^ 'be' -- geezo! you can tell i was on narcotics last night! lol
ahh so! thank you Fraulein. no wonder I's did not knows abouts plyos, I's would kills meself!
they can be murderous.
i have murdered my back several times and brought it back to life
but i think now it's telling me to STICK IT!
How appropriate to find this today. Woke up with some killer back pain. Well done, Mando. Really like 1-2 and 5-7. Did the waffles help with the pain? :)
waffles help with ALL pain :)
p.s. thanks syb! sorry your back hurts :(
you can join my club. you get a free walker. :)
This was a really fun read, it's nice to break out of the melodrama and into something to which I can relate.
L2-3 the little word-nerve half rhyme is very subtly snuck in, it reads very well out loud.
My favorite bit, though, is "swamp donkey".
Thanks for the smile.
Let me adjust you.
whoa, i'm being followed
A slight slant in the spine is a sign of always turning.
^it's always turning, forever and always
