CrutchesPosted: July 23, 2014
A clack of metal!
A grunt of pain!
A three-legged hobbling monstrosity!
Swinging closer at such velocity!
He’s half man, he’s half machine-
a swinging ape in the jungle green!
He awoke one day with great alarm,
his size of leg was half an arm!
Locked away to hide his curse,
his broken limbs he’d been told to nurse.
Just two bars make up his cage –
so well his prison is constructed.
But there’s no need to feel enraged,
into a lifestyle he’s been inducted.
