The WP The Daily Post Prompt—MIRACULOUS
I’ve watched super heroes and characters like that,
And marveled when they healed in nothing flat.
Then, I cut my thumb and boy, it did bleed.
I considered the ER, but said, “No, no need.”
A discarded medical kit sat on my shelf.
I took it down and treated the wound myself.
The bandage was too small to cover the cut,
ER, I thought, but stubbornly said, “tut, tut”.
It’s strange the things our thumbs can do,
Like pulling on boots or tying up shoes.
The cut re-opened with every tug and pull
Still, no ER! Uhn-uhn! That’s bull!
This went on for a week or more.
Thumb aching, thumb bleeding, thumb really sore.
Then one day, quite to my surprise,
I used my thumb to cut some pies.
You ole super-hero you,
Miraculous healing had come right through.
Slightly sore when I rubbed it,
But mending, and I loved it.
A thin membrane covered it whole
It was a miracle to behold.
Ask me in a month, did I cut right or left.
I’ll give you my blank stare and won’t know, myself!
