On the Subject of Cracking Knuckles


On the Subject of Cracking Knuckles

Please don’t snap your bones at me. 
I cringe, I plug my ears, I plea.
If you must make noise with body parts,
please stick to  burping, coughs or farts.
Since popping sounds tend to astound me,
Do not crack knuckles when around me!



I do not like that brittle sound,
so please don’t crack your bones around!

For the dVerse Poets prompt “crack.” For Quadrille Monday.

    Ok. I won’t. aww but it does help relieve the arthritis pain. And no, it doesn’t cause arthritis. My doctor said if my fingers lock, a good cracking will help and it does.

    I agree though it’s a horrible sound. In private is best.

    Cool little poem.

    I like the lightheartedness of this piece Judy. My 6-year-old grandson can crack his knuckles and snap his fingers as loud as gunshots. Little guy loves to sneak up and hit me with a barrage of bone cracking and snapping. He laughs when I jump! 🙂
