The Can Lid Won?

How NOT to have four stitches

In one’s finger to seal a ‘flap’, huge

With air escaping with the red

And feel it, did I true –


The burn of pain

The sense of burn

As the lid indeed did slice,

And all because for dinner

Did I, for sure, pay the price!


For now a finger sore

But has this stopped me

Typing here?

Not a chance has that lid

Won the race,
