Accident(s) ~~ Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Growing (old) Pains

accidents happen
eh you said a what ahead
OMGosh Mack truck

accidents no-no
smashed fenders and broken bones
take the keys away

two broken kneecaps
accident prone watch your step
elevator's nice
wry smile with his curt retort
hard to teach old dog new tricks

Yaaay Jim way to go!! Live life king size and forget the new tricks, love the old styles better.Enjoyed your lovely poem and light hearted too but such great truths there.

Great haikus, thought provoking too re: old age and the consequences of car accidents. I fear my own might be somewhat obscure :O)
