The knee hurts
I’m getting depressed
The pain reached
Hurting on Sunday
It’s like a bed sore
Digging into the leg
Caused by the brace

Physical Therapy
Has to approve a crutch
So I don’t fall
Without the brace

The Consult’s been in
Since Monday
It’s now Thursday
Fine way they treat
Those who served
Protecting the Nation

My sister, the whore,
Gets better treatment
For popping out babies.

Author’s Note: I got a cane this morning so I’m doing better
