Time for my tramadol

4am

my sciatica
is giving me gip

the pain in my hip
is enough to drive a man insane

enough to drive a sane man
to kill dead things

still

it’s quiet in the early morning gloom
I’m listening to the arctic monkey’s mardy bum

while drinking my ginger root organic tea
prone on the couch doing my prone stretchy thing

and there’s not a sound except for a distant snore
of my other half fast asleep on a distant sleepy shore

solace

and my sciatica
is giving me HUGE, HORRENDOUS, HORRIBLE gip

it’s enough to make me bite my lip
make my brain flip, it’s time for my tramadol

time to take that pain free trip.
