My right foot

At 7:40 pm

on Wednesday night

my right foot went on strike

Declaring that unsafe

working conditions

too much unpaid overtime

and general lack

of appreciation

from the management

made continuing

unacceptable

impossible even

 

As we were walking

up a steep hill

at the time

at the end of a

very long day

i was not

amused

 

I tried

flattery

cajoling

threats

and finally resorted

to just dragging

my uncooperative

extremity along

 

Muttering

under my breath

the whole time

Accusing it

of being churlish

Acting like

a petulant child

Refusing to be a

team player

Reminding it

that my left foot

was tired too

But it certainly wasn’t

complaining!

 

My right foot

finally started to

cooperate again

But sulked the

rest of the way home

Damn ungrateful foot
