POEM – Dare to stare?

If you dare to stare
Please do say ‘Hi’.
It’s only a fake leg
It won’t make you die.

If you dare to stare
Why not also smile.
I’m sure it’s not catching
Just go that extra mile.

Because, if you dare to stare,
You clearly want to know
Why my leg is not like yours.
What do I have below?

Instead of stare, here’s a dare.
Introduce yourself.
Never know what might be learned,
About body parts on the shelf.

[Poem by Melanie Magowan]
