There once was a farmer who said,
I’m feeling so light in my head.
My joints and my bones just ache,
And they squeak and pop when I rake.
He went to the doctor for advice,
The doctor said, overall, you look nice.
But your blood is as heavy as lead,
So I think you need to be bled.
With many a phlebotomies,
I felt ever bit of me,
Twas draining with each drop of blood.
But now I feel fine,
But I still can’t drink my wine
For the iron will always be part of me!
