Arthur

Arthur has come for a visit

and he isn’t very nice!

He attacked my hand with such a force,

I am now applying ice!

My knuckles are swollen and aching.

They cannot make a fist.

Each time I try to form a grip

My fingers choose to resist.

Arthur was born to our family

But nobody likes him much.

Arthur likes to make life miserable.

He has a painful touch.

I wish we could tell him off!!

I wish we could send him away!!

Unfortunately, I know in my heart of hearts,

Arthur is here to stay.

He’s the black sheep of our family.

He is a pain whose ways are crude.

His full name is Arthur”itis”.

And to us he’s a dreadful dude!
