SPARE THE ROPE, GRAB THE PEN

When life bow dips down low
Stop! And turn up like a sinking snail
Ponder and look for a blank sheet
Grab the pen,
It is time to lawyer your thoughts
	
“This might be used as evidence in my court of law”
		“Why would you want me not to see the sun again?”
						              …Smiles again?”
					…Happy children play again?”
			…Old folks sipping brew from the pot?”

“Why?”

I know this is not the end
I know I can make the difference
I know I can transform someone’s life
I know I can achieve; and if not today, tomorrow I can

I’ll let the rope tether the billy 
I’ll let the rope unite grandmother’s faggots
I’ll let rope lie and lie
How it can;
On its own!
