1. Well-Intentioned Friends

There once was a man with diabetes
They told him, “You shouldn’t have sweeties!”
But they were so wrong,
He’d brought insulin along!
So he ignored their misguided entreaties!

2. Northwest T1

There once was a girl from Seattle,
Who daily fought a brave battle,
Her life could be hell,
Without beta cells,
But each day she got back in the saddle.
