Cotton Tale

 

Been hanging on by a thread,

so it seems, my whole life;

dangling above chasms

of trouble and strife.

Every so often there comes a

SNIP,

SNIP,

a fragment of cotton

dissolves in a strip.

This thread’s getting shorter,

tauter,

break it, I really oughta

but instead I’ll drop down

on to my knees and gather up

the fragments of cotton.

Weave them,

twist them,

wind and knot;

not much extra

have I got.

I’ll tie it up and make an extension,

but the dangling still is under so much tension.

Hear come the scissors,

SNIP!

SNIP!

And now I drop down

that further bit.

Fragments of thread

makes some cotton tale

but it’s only decreasing

on any scale.
