Declan's Dilemma

by Kerry Valkyrie Baldock Kelly
(Mayo, Ireland)

You mistook gout for a slipped disc,' the good Doctor cried,
'No more rich meats or seafood may be put in your fry,'
'I'm in bad form but my diet is healthy..
As for seafood and meat I'm just not that wealthy!'
'Dehydration could be the underlying cause,'
To which I had to reply with barely a pause
'My thirst is well sated, my tankard is full.
I can drink to the depths beyond a great waterfall,'

'And,' continued the Doctor with his eyebrow raised high
'Therein does the grass root of this problem lie! '
