Personal Grooming
« on: February 01, 2019, 06:07:38 AM »
One went ping, the other went pyooooo….
and Christ only knows where that one flew.
With powerful snips
and forceful clips
in an taxing pose
I trim my toes.
And now I think I’m getting cramp,
Wow  - that pinged off the bedside lamp!
This toenail stuff is weapons grade -
an armour piercing razor blade.
A hit from this and you could die.
Or very likely lose an eye.

What I really need of course
is someone who could shoe a horse,
a practiced eye, an iron grasp,
secateurs, a giant rasp.

But no mere mortal could I ask
to face this Herculean task.
These toes would surely top a list
of woes for a chiropodist.

So in the meantime here I strain
in intermittent toenail rain.
