Altitude

Altitude influence
It’s a drag,
Activates my kidneys
Enough to fill a bag,
Such that I will require
Two trips to the Loo,
Altitude issues
Don’t let them happen to you.

Autonomic responses
Out of my control,
But when traveling on a plane?
Clearly overplay their role,
Where excessive diuresis
May lead to dehydration,
Too much of that, Oh no!
I’ll have Atrial Fibrillation.

Altitude dominates
My current thinking,
The stewards of the plane
Promote frequent drinking,
I’d love to participate
But then I’d have to pee,
Call it an autonomic paradox
And it’s happening to me.
