Gout

Bark into your gold
mike and swell like

infection, filled
with rot and pride:

stagnant, green
with blood’s long

absence. But carry

on dead campaigns.
Salute the old rust

and flaked cores
of hollow country,

mourned by Wasps
that sting and kill

as life abandons
their hopes and fear.

The founding fathers
crumbled to dust

hundreds of years
ago. No one told

you did they?
So throw black-

red roses on graves
unmourned, as blood

leaves cake the earth
around swollen feet.

The gout has begun
its advance. Soon

your words will soften,
and the aphid horde

will wander aimlessly,
lost in a despair

so full and deep
their teeth will tear

at all who cross them.
Your dittoheads will

EaT eAch otHer.

  3. Gout undoubtedly must be seen as an unpleasant condition, my spouse has been battling with the disease for numerous years now. It is horrible, seeing a loved relative experience severe joint pain often. Sticking with a good meal plan for prophylaxis and making use of the right treatment plans is something I believe to be imperative. Personally, I would strongly recommend everyone who is currently noticing the first warning signs of arthritis to by all means be concerned. You should consult a physician as soon as possible and modify your nutrition to prevent the outbreak of the disease. It is anything but fun, thats for sure! Research promising options for therapy and stay clear of purine rich food, alcohol based drinks and the like for prevention!
