Poem - Irony

by Joanne Faries -  continuing the Gamekeeper Thumb theme - what the heck - a tribute poem


loose ligament


pain on pressure

this bonnie lass

auld sod in her blood

diagnosed with gamekeeper’s thumb

 winces at thought of wrenched rabbit neck

far from a ski slope

any athletic  endeavor

instead splinted left thumb

testament to folly

leaves doctor perplexed

far from Scotland hunting grounds
