In honor of White Cane Day I revised “White Cane in Hand,” written here as a poem.  It’s actually in the beginning stages of being made into a children’s book with illustrations and all!  For my original parody with photographs, please see White Cane in Hand.

Do you like white cane in hand?

I do not like white cane in hand.
I do not like it, Joy I am.

Would you use it here or there?

I would not use it here or there.
I would not use it anywhere.
I do not like white cane in hand.
I do not like it, Joy I am.

Would you use it at a park?
Would you use it in the dark?

I do not like it at a park.
I do not like it in the dark.
I do not like it here or there.
I do not like it anywhere.
I do not like white cane in hand.
I do not like it, Joy I am.

Would you use it down the hall?
Would you use it in a mall?

Not down the hall.
Not in a mall.
Not at a park.
Not in the dark.
I would not use it here or there.
I would not use it anywhere.
I do not like white cane in hand.
I do not like it, Joy I am.

Would you?  Could you?
With some bling?
Try it!  Try it!
What a thing!  

I would not, could not with some bling.

You may like it.
You will see.
You may like it
to feel free?

I would not, could not to feel free!
Not with some bling!  You let me be.
I do not like it down the hall
I do not like it in a mall.
I do not like it at a park.
I do not like it in the dark.
I would not use it here or there.
I would not use it anywhere.
I do not like white cane in hand.
I do not like it, Joy I am.

A street!  A street!
A street!  A street!
Could you, would you
to cross a street?

Not on a street!  Not to feel free!
Not with some bling. You let me be!
Not down the hall.
Not in a mall.
Not at a park.
Not in the dark.
I would not use it here or there.
I would not use it anywhere.
I do not like white cane in hand.
I do not like it, Joy I am.

Say!
On a plane?
Here on a plane!
Would you, could you on a plane?

I would not, could not on a plane.

Would you, could you to find a seat?

I would not, could not to find a seat

Not on a plane.  Not on the street.
Not with some bling. Not to feel free.

I do not like it, don’t you see?

Not down the hall.
Not in a mall.
Not at a park.
Not in the dark.
I would not use it here or there.
I would not use it anywhere.
I do not like white cane in hand.
I do not like it, Joy I am.

Would you, could you as a limbo stick?

I could not, would not as a limbo stick.

Could you, would you for a sword trick?

I would not, could not for a sword trick.
I will not, will not as a limbo stick
Not on a plane.  Not on the street.
Not with some bling. Not to feel free.

I do not like it, don’t you see?

I do not like it down the hall.
I do not like it at the mall.
I will not use it at a park.
I do not like it in the dark.
I would not use it here or there.
I would not use it ANYWHERE!
I do not like white cane in hand.
I do not like it, Joy I am!

You do not like it, SO you say!
Try it! Try it and you may, I say!

If you let me be,
I will try it,
so you’ll see.

…Say!
I like white cane in hand!
I do!

I like it, Joy I am!
And I would use it to do a sword trick.

And I would use it as a limbo stick.
And I will use it on a plane.  And on the street.
And with some bling. And to feel free.

It is so fun, so FUN you see!

So I will use it down the hall.
And I will use it in a mall.  

And I will bring it to a park.
And I will use it in the dark.
I do so like white cane in hand. I do so like it, Joy I am!

And I will use it here and there
Say!  I will use it ANYWHERE!

I do so like white cane in hand.
I do so like it, Joy I am!
