He felt weak and tired at the end of the day

“Its office stress;” he shrugged away

Leg cramp, backache, drowsy feel

“Bad office chair;” no big deal

Itchy thick skin, putting on weight

“Allergy and obesity is a family trait”

Dozing off at boardroom meet

“Night spent on facebook, whatsapp, tweet”

Tucked in the neck, like a bowtie

Thyroid gland looks like a cute butterfly

It takes in Iodine from salt and food

Thyroid hormone it reliably extrude

Thyroid hormone maintain body heat,

The pep, the spark, the drive to compete

Lack of thyroid hormone result

Actions slow, mind tend to rust

Diverse disease, no thread to fit,

Thyroid may be the real culprit

Once in a while, go get a check

To make sure the butterfly in the neck

Remain 'metabolic active', fiddle and fit

To sustain your smile and razor-sharp wit.
