Knobbly Knees

Oh Sigh!

By Rick Henry ChristopherPublished 18 days ago 1 min read




My knees are so old and they're knobbly

They creak and they crack and feel wobbly

I used to be spry

Now I heave a big sigh

And hope that my joints won't be wobbly

Rick Henry Christopher

Writing is a distraction for me. It takes me to places unknown that fulfill my need for intellectual stimulus, emotional release, and a soothing of the breaks and bruises of the day.

    Hilarious. Welcome to the club of creaky old wobbly knees. Even young knees are messed up these days.
