Human bipeds have two sets of digits.
The hands and the feet can both fidget.
I used to tap on the table
Till a spirit was able
To come to my aid with a widget.
I was going through a hard adolescence…
Am I now approaching my due senescence?
I irritated my Ma
So she shouted,you’re bizarre.
You’ve got OCD built into your essence.
I asked if I had inherited it from her.
She gave me a furious stare.
She said,we all have our scruples
But yours have quadrupled.
I loved you but now I don’t care.
That seemed very immoral to me.
She gave me no warm sympathy.
So I scratched my own skin
Which was in any case too thin…
But it helped to scare off a stray flea.
If we’re neurotic it is not a crime.
We may learn how to use it in time.
Though tapping on wood
Does one no good.
I have found my salvation in rhyme.
