Only My Pride

by joetwo

Don’t worry!

Only my Pride was hurt

And maybe my legs

They probably shouldn’t bend that way


I’m OK!

Only my Ego was bruised

And my clavicle

That really is an unhealthy shade of brown-green


I told you I’m fine!

I’ll laugh it off

Once they set my jaw properly

You haven’t stepped on any teeth? Have you?



I’ll be back.

When my back is sorted

And I get the feeling in my toes again.
