Say It Ain`t So

Contributed by jamesstockdale on Sunday, 17th November 2019 @ 03:07:00 PM in AEST
Topic: DarkPoetry

You got no hope
When you are dangling from a rope
There ain`t no antidote
Cause it`s all she wrote
You may be an old goat
But when you are swinging on that rope
You`ve got no time to gloat
Easy come easy go
No more tough roads to hoe
Say it ain`t so
To this ole Joe

"But when you are swinging on that rope
You/'/ve got no time to gloat".

We all swing from that rope, James. Brilliant metaphor for what life does to us, or at least how I perceive this very well written nugget of suggestion.

The thing is .. sometimes a rope is a lifeline. .. But we must grab hold with our hands and not our neck.

My poems of this nature are difficult to read now.
A mere 11 months ago, on Christmas Day 2018, my nephew hanged himself to death.

Sometimes we fail to see the bigger picture as pain distorts.

Grab hold with both hands and pull yourself up.

Take care.

//// Who you callin` an old goat?

Never mind, you`re right.

I likes it. It`s like a rap.
