A Christmas poem

I wrote this and posted it a few years ago on TuD, some of you may have seen it.

D Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse

I had just settled down and was so soundly sleeping
When all of the sudden my CGM started beeping

I arose from my slumber and looked at the screen
With down pointing arrows I am low it does seem

As I sat in the kitchen treating my low
I can’t help but notice the beauty of the new fallen snow.

With BG recovered I head back to my bed
When I come across a gentleman all dressed in red

Forgive Dear Santa I’m not here to spy
Diabetes required attention I hope you understand why

I know you my child and I know of your burden
There was a tear in his eye of this I am certain

I remember your wishes from so long ago
That I can not fulfill them still troubles me so

To change you this night is not within my power
If my magic could cure I would do so this hour

Thank you Dear Santa, I know you must take flight
With so many children to visit this night

With this he did exit my humble home
Off into the night in his sleigh he did roam

I heard him exclaim as he rode out of sight


This is so funny! And a couple of weeks ago I wrote a similar take on this same poem (probably my favorite poem) about T1D but then deleted it (Santa was stuffing @Eric’s stocking with Afrezza and there were Luer Locks on the Christmas tree. But I realized that no one would want T1D as a Christmas gift.) Thanks for sharing. Your personal version is much better. :slight_smile:
