Type 1 Diabetes

A healthy pancreas
Is like a transmission
Seamlessly shifting gears
In type 2 diabetics
Wear and tear
Causes  clunks and issues
In type 1 diabetics
We have none
We’re driving standard
Learning the flow
Of their motor
Choking and stalling
Learning to anticipate
Difficult hills
Even with experience
Abrubt stops and starts
Make for a jerky ride
