March 23rd…“DID YOU EVER BREAK A BONE, OR BONES. TELL US HOW.”
POEM – “Pain Is A Messy Teacher” by N. Elliott Noorlun
Two YOWSA instances, Come to mind,
When life to me, T’weren’t very kind.
In Nineteen Hundred and Seventy Four,
This 20 year buck, Just out the door,
Tried to stop, A trampoline,
That came my way, And started to lean,
Upon my hand, And broke two bones,
I hollered LOUD, And made some moans.
Then came 1981,
While riding a mower, This son of a gun,
Decided to try, And stop the blade,
So mincemeat of, My hand it made!
Finger tip gone, Another one broke,
Life changed quick, In one fell stroke,
Pain is one heckuva messy teacher,
Especially when dealing, With a Norski creature. 😉
