Home Grown Conspiracies
…research shows that 77% of accident related injuries happen in the home…
A scalded hand while draining the pasta
a cut on your thumb from a broken glass, a
broken toe from stumbling into the door jamb (you weren’t wearing slippers!).
A wrenched shoulder reaching for cans
on a high shelf, losing your balance
and falling off rickety ladders, (welcome to the broken hippers).
A sprained knee and a spasming back
slipping on floors you recently waxed
and developing a nervous tick (trepidation starts to fill me).
Now here I stand at the top of the stairs
perhaps it’s time to whisper a prayer
to the Gods who protect klutzes like me (‘cos my home is trying to kill me).
