On  Frozen  Pond
~~~


I  climbed  upon  the  greenhouse  roof
a  drunken  shortcut  took
The  glass  beneath   me  shattered  proof
of every  step  I  took
~
I  cut  my  knees  and  scraped  my  shins
my  pants  a  ragged  mess
A  few  more  steps  and  I'll  be  across
this  frozen  pond  I  guess
~
A  mighty  crash  without  a  splash
The  ice  gave  way  too  soon
My  belt  hung  up  upon  a  nail
as  I  dangled  above  the  room
~
I  wave  my  arms  and  kick  my  legs
hey  there's  people  under  water
And  I'm  not  even  soaking  wet
except  I  relieved  my  bladder
~~~


 I'm not ugly!
I'm just visually challenged!
