If You Have an Illness

So, you went to the doctor
You received the word
Now what ya gonna do
Shrivel up like a bird?

Hell no, you won’t
You can’t do that
You got to pull your panties up
And put on your hat.

You will get involved
You will tell all
You will do all you can
You will stand TALL.

You will have moments
Where tears will fall
Then you will dry tears
And stand for all.

You will eat right
Exercise too
Follow doc’s rules
Using all tools.

And if in the end
You meet heaven’s doors
You have left behind
People to fight this war.
