Wayward Toes

Two toes will be corrected
by surgeons scaple soon.
They’ve gotten way out of line,
took it upon themselves to go
willy-nilly wherever they want,
hurting other toes with their
don’t care how much you are
crowded or rearranged attitude.
They’ll get their come-uppance now,
they’ll be chopped and sawed
and pins rammed in.  That’s what
happens to toes that go haywire.
I just hope this will be a good lesson
for the other eight little piggies.

Judy, I hope the other little piggies DO learn a lesson! I had toe surgery once. No regrets.

Victoria said...

Poor little piggies. I really like your attitude here, the humor and whimsy around a medical challenge.

Went through this procedure as a child - but for different reasons. Your piggies will be over the moon!

OUCH! This piece made my feet ache a bit, Judy.


Andy said...

Ouch! I feel the pain.

Laughing...what has life come to that even our toes don't obey us?

Hope you'll be painfree soon.

I think these piggies are perfect, but looks can be deceiving. If they are causing you pain, they must be punished, porcine porcupines!

Youch! I'm going to read this poem to my toes keep crossing ever more over their neighbor in the hopes that they'll be "scared straight!"
