If I were in a wheelchair Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Rashad Amahad, Bahamas Aug 23, 2009
Disability Culture , Health , Human Rights   Poetry

  

If I were in a wheelchair
I'd wish you would not stop and stare,
Unless it was at the glare from my super fine hair.

If I were in a wheelchair man, I would love to have ramps everywhere.

If I were in a wheelchair I would love to play ball,
Enough room to flow down the hall...
Please don't take that space in the mall!

If I were in the wheelchair I would love to trick it out
So that when I'd roll you'd scream and shout.

If I were in the chair my car would be rigged
So that when it was time to get out I'd just get out.

Hey if I were in the chair would you please do your part to help a brother out?
