If you are disabled,

Don’t let it you despair.

There’s a world of gadgetry

To get you anywhere.

There’s the metal walker,

An ingenious device,

To prop you up, no matter what,

On deck, or floor or ice.

Then there is the shower bench.

No excuse to not be clean.

You can seated scrub and soak

Beneath the cleansing stream.

Have to use the john?

A commode is what you need.

It’s wheeled and height adjustable.

Just be sure your aim to heed!

Of all the woundeds’ friends

The sock-aid is the best.

It’s just a sheet of plastic,

But it works! I can attest.

These supremely simple items

Make a cripple’s life worthwhile.

Their anonymous inventors

Have earned Nobels by a mile!
