Poem of the Day

HELP!

 

Balanced on the end of a twig,

raging river below,

tree canopy above,

can’t climb back,

mustn’t fall down.

 

halfway between:

earth and sky,

falling and stuck,

alive and dead.

 

need nerves of steel,

a sharp brain,

monkey muscles.

 

this boy buccaneer

should have eaten

that basin of spinach,

broccoli and seaweed,

 

or he should never

have followed

his fog-brained idea

to climb this tree

in the first place.
