Beware The Cracks In The Pavement.

 

Beware the cracks in the pavement

The ones where the paving stones meet

I rarely walk on slabbed paths now

But grass

Concrete

Tarmac

And I forgot.

 

I can't remember the consequences

But I know that they were bad enough

To always feel the need to watch my feet

Small step

Side step

Leap

Miss the gap.

 

What is it that it would cause? Bad luck

Or was it death that it would bring

I can't remember, I can't take it back

I stepped

I trod

Hard

And now, the consequences.
