My Thumb is Numb

My right forefinger
and the tip of my thumb--
upon awakening--
were both numb.

From pushing tacks
into the wall--
the cards say it all.

Not much money
for six years' work.
It kept me sane
when life was berserk.

It's raining outside;
the opening's tonight.
Will guests show up?
Some people might.

Lots to be done
and I'm wasting time.
My thumb's still numb
so I'm writing a rhyme.
