The first thing doc said was: “Where’s your cane?”
During our visit, I heard the same refrain.
Twice he ordered, so off I went
Got myself a “go any where”, money well spent.
Pretty good company, goes in the car.
Just remember to take it out when you plan to walk far.
Once I couldn’t find it, nowhere in the house.
Checked the garage – there on the shelf, quiet as a mouse.
It can be in any room, leaning against the wall.
Annoying when it doesn’t show up when I call.
Likes to hook on a doorknob, swing off the floor.
The rubber tip could wear out, then back to the store.
The cane is great company, helpful and quiet,
If you need to lighten the pressure, I suggest you try it!
