It's All That There Is

Poem By Gert Strydom

Hung from a Bough
Chainsaws scream
Stay or Go

Arm on the block
Machetes plead
Long-sleeve or short

Mothers stand-fast
Razors debate
Babes or breast

Keep off the Grass
Pegs proclaim
Learn or limp.

Sort of enigmatic this although I do get the point. Read mine – Time for Another – surprise Adeline

that acts transitory during a single hour,
where all of my life is in destiny's scope,
