now this is not fiction! 

Hmm, this poem is not fiction. This is the latest development on my affliction. My doctor has advised me to take Vitamn B complex for my nerve. Hay, buhay!

Tale of the middle toe

Started with a tingle,
then numbness,
the kind that preludes
pins and needles

Alarmed, I called my doctor nephew.
Could it be a stroke? It's on my left
foot after all. "No," he said.
"It's diabetes. Your sugar destroys
the nerves on your hands and feet."

I must take care of my foot
from now on. I wouldn't know
if it hides a wound. I don't want to
say goodbye to my middle toe.
