A pain in the neck

A pain in the neck

I have a pain in the neck that is driving me mad
It hurts like heck coz it is very bad
Guessing I must have been lying with a twisted head a couple of nights ago in my bed
but the trouble is ‘Man alive’
I can’t look around so cannot drive
Honestly there’s always something wrong with me nowadays
just like a hypochondriac
and with my tinnitus and trouble sleeping I am an insomniac

Woe is me I am feeling sorry for myself
as I scrutinise my neck in my mirror on the bathroom shelf
Old age definately doesn’t agree with me
I swear I’ve went downhill last year when I turned sixty
They say 60 is just another number and yes this might well be true
but blast with blitherations it doesn’t half make me blue

great poem 
I ones woke 
up with my head on 
neck on my 
and couldn't lift
it off when I tried
it hurt I didn't go 
to the doc I had the
day off from work
but still  went out 
driving don't ask 
how I did that 
I just did it 
next day I could lift 
it but it hurt to do so
by the end of the week
I was ok agin and never had 
that agin like that the back of
of my neck hurts alal the time 
bec of looking at my phone 
all day oh well
