Everyone Has a Touch of Klutz

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.


Bang, Bullocks, Rattle, Click and a Clang

That's me stumbling down the steps fracturing my hand

"Geez, he is such a klutz," A young lady whispered

As I begun to stumble over a stationary skateboard

Oh my god, I am such a klutz, I tripped on my left foot an landed on a coup

Then ordered egg sandwich and knocked out the waiters soup

My friends designed a T-Shirt for me and printed on it mishap

I am simply a walking accident, a human trap

I dunno, every time my pals come around they where hard hats

Maybe it's because on the head of Bill I nearly dropped a building block

It missed his crown just by a couple inches but hit is shoulder

Now each time he comes around he is padded like a sofa

Geez. I am such a klutz.

My girlfriend left because she said I kept spilling wine on her dresses. She thinks I am nuts.

My supervisor at work moved me from the central area and put me in an office by myself

Keeps on telling me that in here I will only be a danger to myself

Maybe it was because I tried to shred my coffee mug and deleted the files for everyone else.

And mistakenly added hot pepper sauce to the fruit punch and gave everyone a fire instead of a quench

So how are you doing, are you a walking accident like me?

Or do you have that klutz hidden deep? But hey, if you want to let it out, I can design the key.

Clive, yes, the rats too. You should see them knock over my lamp and CDs when they're lose in the house. Cheers.

Billy....you better stay far from those beauties....then again isn't your wife one...Well then Klutz you are!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on June 05, 2017:

I'm not much of a klutz unless I'm around a beautiful woman. Then look out!!!!!

Clive, I think everyone is a klutz at times. Once a friend's father died and I went to the funeral home to give my support. The home had a foot scraper to wipe your feet on, well this was back when we wore spike heels, I got my spike in one of the little holes. I started to walk and noticed I was dragging the scraper inside. The funeral director had to come and remove my shoe to release it. I got tickled and couldn't stop laughing. When I looked at my friend's father, I lol again, needless to say I made a scene that I will never forget. I liked your poem!!!

Klutz here... I drop everything, but I always manage to catch them. Except the expensive stuff. Even my rats are klutzi. They drop stuff like food and knock over everything.

Us klutzi are one of a kind.... LOL.

Hey John, Maybe you need that hard hat...lol

Clive Williams (author) from Jamaica on June 04, 2017:

LOL@Eric...come now eric, don't put the klutz on your dear wife and sis....

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on June 04, 2017:

Funny, Clive. I am always walking into things or standing up under them, bumping my head, even though I am not that tall. My wife on the other hand is always dropping stuff and I am following after picking th up. So, yeah we are klutzes or klutziness as Eric informed.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on June 04, 2017:

Yahoo!! A Clive Special.

My wife and my big sister are Klutzi (I think that is the plural;-)

Sometimes it is scary. Here is the wicked part, with a Klutz you are afraid to help them lest you are to blame.
