THE ITCH

The writer of Proverbs
may have had a problem
similar to one that I have sometimes.

Long ago, divinely inspired, he wrote:
”Two is better than one.”

The problem is
when I have an itch
in certain places on my back
that I cannot reach.

Back scratchers just don’t cut it.
Leaning against a wall and wiggling
helps a little.

The best solution
is finding another to stand behind you
and you verbally guide that person
until the exact location of the itch is found
and then he or she commences scratching.

“Two is better than one.”
