This Ladder Won’t Be Climbed Via Rungs

It’s easy to get down.

You can jump.

Tougher to get up.

You can grunt.

Cause the ladder of life

Is bound by steps

That ain’t right.

None are straight or narrow.

Some look like a barrel

For shootin’ fish.

Or going splish!

Now hold your breath!

For there be death!

Swim hard both right

And left

Reach for the rim

Now grab the next step

On life’s ladder

After barrel.

Barry Williams

Much of what I write will be quite understandable to insane folks.

The rest will be, uh, less understandable...
