Sometimes you just have to go against the flow.

Escalators

Moving stairs,

Up or down they go.

The effort

Is much harder

When you go against the flow.

 

Downwards

The stairs pull you,

Back towards the ground.

Walking up

When moving down,

The effort can astound.

 

Upwards

They are moving,

Lifting you up high.

You turn to

Walk back down

Straining ankle, knee and thigh.

 

Easiest

Just to go along

And enjoy the ride

But sometimes

There’s no alternative

Than to go against the tide.
