Parkinson’s never asked me if it could come and play,
It’s the kind of houseguest you wish would go away.
This disease is a strange one for no two are alike,
It can steal your balance, your speech, or ability to bike.
Parkinson’s has a wider impact, farther than we know,
Without a better understanding, it is sure to grow.
