Backyard Remedy

After booking for a consul-tation, The doctor prescribed medi-cation, But when I stood on a rake, Then stepped back on a snake; That’s what cured my consti-pation.

Thank you Maurice... I see you picked up on the innovative rhyme. I felt I had to separate the words to make the rhyme appear proper. The remedy... no, your advise is wise - Lindsay

Oh dear! This is a gem, though I wouldn't advise it as a remedy for anything! What innovative rhymes you chose, too! Keep us laughing, Lindsay. / M

Thank you John... I had an angry tiger snake confront me once so I guess that influenced me, but... at the time it wasn't funny at all. I'm convinced that you can't tell a funny enough joke to get a grin out of a tiger snake - Lindsay

Too right Paul... the problem with an instant cure like this is, a small consequence that needs addressing as well - Lindsay
