Dismemberment Insurance


I got a letter from the bank.
It said that I had them to thank
For buying an insurance plan,
In case I cut off both my hands.

One Thousand dollars was the sum,
A paltry honorarium.
A pittance, hardly worth the time,
To find a stamp, and lick, and sign.

And so I stuck it to the wall
Beside my Powermatic saw.

But surely your *band saw* is not the one that threatens your hands, is it? Then again, sometimes it's the less-dangerous that hurt us - I once sanded off two fingernails on a deck sander :(!
