Rub Some Dirt On It - Poem by Bryan Corbett

I got a paper cut
and complained

behind me
a man with an arthritic finger
said: rub some dirt on it

behind him
a man with a broken arm
said: rub some dirt on it

behind him
a man with a shattered leg
said: rub some dirt on it

behind him
a man with a stutter
said: rrrrrub s-s-s-some d-d-d-dirt on it-t

behind him
a man lying in a grave
well, he, of course, said nothing
and, incidentally, had the last word on the subject
