Tag Archives: crawling along the ice?


Rain dripping from canopies,

This one hopes you don’t freeze…

Salting trucks

Earn a few bucks,

But slipping brings us to our knees…literally.

He hasn’t yet found a cane

Upright in freezing rain…

Somedays he’ll crawl

To get there at all,

But then standing up is a pain!

Stores don’t sell crampons,

The kind canes can clamp on…

Do such exist–

A patent like this–

Somebody could make money on!
