Kneepads - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If you want to crawl
Buy you some kneepads,
To protect those knees.
You'll be grateful when you wake up,
From a move you'll think was foolish.

If you want to crawl with a pleading to please
At least do it with class,
Wearing kneepads.

Those humble knew of stumbling,
Most of their lives.
And not in comfort when they did it.

But some unfamiliar with the act of this,
Try to make it appear
A bruising done on bended knees,
Will for them be temporary.

If you want to crawl
Buy you some kneepads,
To protect those knees.
You'll be grateful when you wake up,
From a move you'll think was foolish.

If you want to crawl with a pleading to please
At least do it with class,
Wearing kneepads.

If you want to crawl with a pleading to please
At least do it with class,
Wearing kneepads.
