Prone to Falling

she should wear a wrist band
like in a nursing home –
“fall risk” it reads
in bold letters
she falls for anything
the chop-o-matic that
doesn’t chop onions
the sham-wow that
leaves streaks on her car
a money back guarantee
with fine print
the promise of free shipping
one size fits all
and the man who promised
he would never leave


Things are not always what they seem – thats the prompt at OctPoWriMo today
