I try to do all I should do
but I just can’t satisfy you.
I can try so hard just to please
but you hang here like a disease.
When I feel like it’s all in vain
and you place me in such a strain
you ease up and allow me hope
that once again I can cope.
You play me like a cat and mouse
tight in your paws then run the house.
You let me think I have you licked
then again I learn I’ve been tricked.
I wish I could send you away
so far that you would have to stay
but I know that I’m stuck with you
no matter what I try to do.
Your appetite grows every day
taking more of my friends away.
You think you will always beat us
since your name is diabetes.
