These fingers work tirelessly to untie the knots in your back---
Those suckers are tougher to untangle than the ones in your hair.
Your dorsal side earned its merit badges like a good scout:
Fastening strands with precision, carrying the load of a nice lady,
Survival in the most extreme of conditions. Two fingers up,
It'll be honored to help another scout out.
Sometimes those laces need to be undone after a good hike.
Weathering the elements for too long can cause monumental stress;
So take off your pack and relax. Those already knotted fibers strained
To the breaking point; frayed around the edges,
Time for a hemming.
This trooper's nimble fingers can thread a needle too,
Don't ya see my badge?
