Does it hurt?
When you prick your finger
I do this just for fun
Our fingers lose feeling
What hurts
Is having to do it 3 times
In a row
Squeezing for more blood
Holding your mouth just right
Hoping for just a little more
Or when your fingers are cold
And nothing comes out at all
Or your fingers are too numb
Dropping strips everywhere
But what hurts even more
Is wasting strips
Thrown in the trash
That hurts more
But what hurts the most
Is dying
Because you didn’t check at all
