A Painful Slide

The Ragtag Daily Prompt today is STEPS. And I am very late, but here’s my mini-verse:

He climbed up the steps so to gain
 admittance through the front door,
 but the step had a glaze of ice-rain
 so his traction was awfully poor.

 With a thud he landed again
 right back where he'd started his trek;
 from the tumble he felt severe pain
 but at least hadn't broken his neck.
