The alarm bell rang with an urgency, which was not required.
The swans trade beauty for bread
and I am on the peak of madness
but I know sat here , I shall not jump.

Soon everyone will wake
and I will
my misery
but you my friend 
will always be lower
than the local hangman.

    It isn't good to be higher than the hangman. Once you are able to see eye to eye, it is too late. Interesting! Vince

    I admit, I really don't do well with humor. I am sorry if I offended you in anyway. I put my poem Rudolph in one of the up and coming contests. for the christmas one.
