Seeing Wordle on Wake up Scared's blog gave me an idea of how to show my poem from a different perspective in this topsy-turvy world.
On Friday I sat in the dentist’s chair
from half past one until the clock struck five.
Impressions they were making seemed to tear
in half. Somehow, I managed to survive.
On Saturday I reached inside my car
to get my camera out. I grabbed the pack
when, yipes! A sudden twang ~ oh how bizarre!
I couldn’t straighten up! My aching back!
On Sunday I tried hard to sit or stand
without a painful spasm. It was no use.
Oh, for a back massage…a helping hand
to give relief and set these muscles loose.
What’s that? Oh no! The toilet’s sprung a leak!
That’s just the weekend! Now, here comes the week!
On Monday I stayed home from work to rest
I couldn’t do much else. I read a book.
I tried to get up once or twice. A test
to see if I could move at all. I took
an Ibuprofen ~ it was recommended
but then I fell asleep ~ and drove a bus
oh, that was in my dreams, of course. It ended
before I had to back it up ~ a plus.
On Tuesday, I’ll stay home. I shouldn’t drive
or hobble into work. It isn’t wise.
My emails let them know I am alive
and if they ask me questions, I’ll advise.
My laptop is a boon on days like these.
I hope I’m better soon…no guarantees!!
