An Illusionary Humbug!


I got a quest to test
When I hold my wrist
I could feel my first cyst

While checking the pulse rate
I intended to check the calendar for tomorrow’s date
As the next day is going to be great

I want to tell my girl in the future
It was the day I felt the culture
A growing cyst that I will nurture

I touch them to check whether they’re swollen
Yes, they are swollen
I check my heart beat often

Is it beating twice?
Yep, it is beating twice
Sometimes, thrice!

Finally, it is dawn
The lengthy night has gone
Time has come to test the b(u)rine

I am super excited to test
And inform him next
With the positive result

If the color is clear
I will hold it near
With rolling down tear

As expected, ‘tis again a fake
I thought it would be Nike
Maybe I have to control my psyche

I was instructed to check it in an empty stomach
Ouch! I have checked only an empty stomach
Again, I got nothing but an illusionary humbug!
