The Headache

Clipart image of a crane lifting a container on/off a ship, at a port.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 28 November 2021, spot.

Once my uncle worked down at the docks,
Loading ship, as the crane slipped a box,
When he spotted the crate,
It was, sadly, too late,
And the only things found were his socks.
