The following Limerick was inspired by Paint the World with Words Poetic Form of the Week ‘Be Inspired Challenge’…
There lives a strange frog,
Who can blow up a fog,
Causing heaviness and confusion.
And when he arrives,
He will change all your lives,
And you’ll struggle to find a solution!
You can try exercising,
And it might be surprising,
This leads to a poor constitution.
People think that we’re lying,
Don’t believe that we’re trying,
We need an M.E.* revolution!

*M.E. stands for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
