When a mugger jumped from the shadows,
Child’s Pose helped me surrender
Defeated by another political party,
I took strength from Warrior Pose
As my children went from laughing to crying then
sleeping within moments, I flowed along in Chaturanga
to Plank to Up-dog.
Drunk with power from conquering a competitor
I regained humility by falling in Tree Pose
When the boiler bursted, flooding the basement
Boat Pose didn’t really help
But when my dog couldn’t play dead I showed
her with Corpse Pose
Love elephant and want to go steady?
