OH! change change; then.? change again!
it has been like this since i don't know when!
one minute all is going well, then chug splat chug
theres a problem spell, ..you know its never even going;
(smooth) but win & win, or lose lose lose, yet i'll persevere
and change my tack, so.. once more in rhythm and back on track."
then the kalidoscope constricts in the frame, lo.. and behold, I've
missed again, when...hold..on one minute! i've just been told..! that
opportunity could be spotted..away out west..! not waiting for the
wrong footing moment to get my best, i am off regardless in my
underpants and vest, i am going hard like i was running for gold."
Then when i round that corner..! it was like i had been told.. a large
Feline spotted black on gold ! and at i would say about 7ft long oh.. i do
Hope (my opportunity) doesn't come on.. too strong...!.
