The Atlas-Orthogonal Rap 

I bent over and bent some more
Until I was nearly touching the floor
I thought my MS had seen it all
That was when Chiropractic
Came knocking at my door
If only I had discovered earlier
My upper cervical atlas was in disaster
From a fall as a small girl
Fell off a horse who’d taken a spell
Catapulted into a shoulder cartwheel
My neck, the force: l’hermittes brewed
Electric shocks along my spine
Subtle sensations not so divine
All it took was a simple tap
22 years later
The Atlas-Orthogonal rap
Bridged an area in my spine
Where MS had been sitting all the time
Strengthened my core to the bone
Enables me to live comfortably in my own home
Despite the MS, I live my life
Getting better, recovering, through the strife
