Frankenhand and the Frozen Pizza

You have to read my post from yesterday, click here, to fully appreciate this title, but Mike at The Zen Hiker did just that. He then wrote a poem for me. Not a romantic poem, not an existential poem, but a poem making fun of inspired by my kitchen mishap. This is a great blog site, filled with hiking experiences/know-how, photography and poetry.

I have the privilege of being friends with Mike in the real world, not just the blogging world, so he gets away with his humorous blog about me being a knucklehead. He is a wonderful writer, and I hope you enjoy this poem and check out his blog.

The Zen Hiker

I walked to the freezer with a pizza in mind,

Ripped from its box, a mighty nice find.

I opened the oven, the pie on a tray,

Twenty  short minutes, I’d then have my say.

So I sat and I waited, and as the pizza was cooking,

Two pot holders I searched for, all the time looking.

As the clock winded down and it smelled almost done,

I was in a pot holder dilemma, I could only find one!

So I opened the door, and as I reached in with my right,

The pan started slipping and I got a big fright.

The pizza was loose, the pizza was falling,

It couldn’t be wasted, my stomach was calling.

So the brave soul I am, not caring about pain,

I reached out with my left, completely insane.

My fingers touched heat and they started to swell,

I don’t know what happened…

    That’s a good poem! It’s good to laugh when things go wrong, I think. Lightens the mood and helps us forget the pain. I hope your hand is feeling better soon!
