My Dear Friend is Broken


Brian Lee Clements


My dear friend has lately been accident prone.


It’s something we don’t condone


A few years ago she boke her hip,


And that is just the iceberg tip


She then tore that same hip's muscle,


When she got into a training tussle


But wait, there's more,

We’re not trying to keep score,


She once happened to break her little toe,


But that was a little blow,


And then got bit by a pig,


Which almost ended his gig,


And you ask, how can that be?


We wonder also how she sprained that knee,


And now she just broke her ankle


And that isn’t what set the good example,


What set it was when she got pooped on by a calf with diarrhea


But hopefully she won't get hurt eating a cold pizza,


Maybe she'll heal up in the next few months,


That is, If she doesn’t do any more jumps

A lot bit forced, but very lively, lots of fun...!
And I can tell, just from your words, this person’s special; Hurt’s absurds!?!

Oh boy; your friend needs some sort of protection wall around her. I don't want to laugh at someone elses pains, but this is a fun(ny) piece. Rhyming is hard; sometimes it's forced. But it's definitely fun! Pooped on by a calf ... Oh My Goodness.
