Broken Back

Lifting a load of stored clothes In the house 
Crack went the back What a terrible noise 
All the way up
The spine it went
A terrible feeling 
All over my being

Something terribly wrong 
With full bodily sound
Woe filled my soul
With a heart filled bound
With a sound that could be heard
All around the town

The doctors could only wonder
Why I wasn't in pain
As later that day
So close to the spine 
Inches from the backbone
The vertebrae they found
