NeuritFingers that are there, but not there
the numbness growing into pain
five needles straight into the nerve
make it zing and twang and spasm.
Not a demon or a jinn, is this neuritis
just a stupid angry nervous nerve
that will steal not just a finger but a hand
if left to its own devices.
Not a voodo doll to stick the needles in
just a middle-aged and average arm
that zings and twangs and spasms
while they lull old Neurit back to sleep.
