Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

When his joints gave way, my grandpa lost hope
Until his doctor bought an arthroscope
Now he climbs mountains without a wheeze
Simply because he has brand-new knees

My brand new knee must have shipped with a factory defect 'cause it still doesn't work right.

But I think it's out of warranty now.

I think I need a complete rebuild let alone brand new knees ~ Eddie

LOL Good for your grandpa. I think most of that kind of surgery turn out well. Sadly that isn't always the case, as in my Mom's second knee, which never got fixed. She's doing okay and doesn't miss climbing mountains.

Cheers!
