Diabetic curse

Yet another tablet to take
This one gives me tummy ache
It's like a train in a tunnel
it just wants to run through

Nigerian doctor advised me to take
As it was sure to help me to lose weight
Not too sure that I want to
When all I get is tummy ache

When I told the wife the tablets
May give me thrush she said. "Absurd,
Who told you that?". I replied.
Oh just some blackbird.

Before publishing I showed this to the doctor in question,
She just laughed, Then asked me for a copy.
Which I signed for her.

It is quite annoying when medications don't work or have such kind of contraindications. We've had a bit of a rough start to the month what with the changing of dosage on our maintenance meds.
