It Is Hard to Get Away
I ran and jumped behind a potted plant, but you found me
I got away, but briefly, and was not discovered for almost six minutes.
But my breathing was too deep, and you heard, and conquered.
I keep peeling myself away, but you reeled me back, and swiftly.
I never before realized how hard it is to get away from ideas.
You have won now, so, what my dear, is my next step, pray tell?
