A MIND AS SHARP AS A TANK
We expect questions and quizzing and quips from those with sharp minds,
From detectives, mystery sleuths or other investigative kinds.
They might press me for substantiation, that her name was Barb;
Who was at home, wearing some comfortable stay-at-home garb.
This tale is about a home crafter, whose craft tools did impale;
And I assure you I didn’t invent, nor make up this tale.
You may come to wish you were a mouse-in-the-corner-mouse,
To report to the neighborhood how she got stuck in the house!
PRICKLY PROBLEM WITH STABBING PAIN IN THE END
CRAFT STUCK TO THE FLOOR – GET THE POINT?
She’s sharp as a tack and we think she lived on the edge of town.
This painful event started and ended when she fell down.
Her craft equipment and pin cushion were placed within easy reach.
The pins and the markers were inserted with a specific space for each.
The baby quilting was interrupted by a doorbell ring.
She jumped up and planned to answer that aggravating thing.
You are starting to wish you were a mouse-in-the-corner mouse.
To get your humor fix about how she got stuck in the house!
GETTING A RISE FROM GETTING A MULTIPLE OUCH
MORE THAN PIERCED EARS/DID SHE GET STUCK END TO END?
She jumped to her feet so quickly that she lost her balance there
And sat on the pin cushion, sitting just two feet from the chair.
You may howl with laughter but that home crafter howled with pain.
(Her reaction was to leap … not a moment did she remain.)
She had a day or literally sitting on needles and pins.
This story tells itself .. it doesn’t require humorous spins.
We cannot verify. There was no mouse-in-the-corner mouse
To videotape how she stumbled and got stuck in the house!
