Uncontrolled Diabetes, today in your honor,
I expand the meaning of what it means to be a homewrecker.
The term is usually used in the context of an extramarital affair,
But your complications can produce just as much despair.
When you’re present you challenge the dynamics of a relationship,
As keeping a check on you takes more than a stick on the fingertips.
When uncontrolled, you pounce on the opportunity,
To take away a person’s bread winning responsibility.
You interfere causing financial instability,
Sometimes putting an entire family in great difficulty.
As if normal didn’t have its fair share,
You challenge the interaction with the ones who do care.
The mood swings you produce everyone has to be aware,
Some stand up to it, while others just stay clear.
There’s the old saying of not getting in between a husband and a wife,
But you do the opposite by becoming a part of their life.
You complicate things with decreased sex drive and impotency,
Which is a direct threat to moments of intimacy.
So there you go breaking bonds and connection,
Slowly eroding feelings of love and affection.
Diabetes’ sweet talking intent isn’t so friendly,
That’s why under home wrecker it should be added to the dictionary.
