Disabled people

Are not always sickly

Some are happy

Some are prickly.


Some have health issues

Some do not

Many make the most

Of the health they have got.


So please don’t assume

As I use a wheelchair

That my health is not good

That’s unjust and not fair.

My blood pressure, cholesterol

And sugar is fine

Visceral fat on organs?

No, not on mine.


I don’t carry disease

I’ve dodged hereditary cancer

So I’m doing just fine

A well seasoned dancer.


I dance to a tune

Many do not

I eat mainly raw

That’s why disease I ain’t got!
