I Bend In The Middle

by John Schrag
(N. Newton, KS USA)



Over dishes to be done,
I bend in the middle
When collecting trash has begun,
I bend in the middle
When putting socks on my feet,
re-arranging bills to look neat,
Or picking berries to eat,
I bend in the middle.

While cooking and baking,
I bend in the middle
When throw rugs need shaking,
I bend in the middle
While doing inspections,
Wiping dusty collections,
Or making toddler connections
I bend in the middle

When I’m raking the yard
I bend in the middle
When I’m laughing real hard,
I bend in the middle
When I pull up my boot,
Destroy a weed by its root,
Or gather clothes from the chute,
I bend in the middle

When I'm reading a book
I bend in the middle
When I take a close look
I bend in the middle
When I‘ve cleaned wall to wall,
Finished tasks large and small,
And I stand proud and tall,
I bend in the middle
