Bracing Triumph

by Ruth S. Baker

“New limb for Triumph, the koala born with missing foot, thanks to Lismore dental prosthetist”
Australian BC News

Triumph by name and nature, there he goes,
Flaunting his fine new dental-putty toes.
Where once he dragged, he scampers now with zest,
And scales his eucalyptus with the best;
Posture restored, mobility regained,
Koala T (O mercy!) is not strained.
