Sword of Damacles

Sword of Damacles

When you’re hanging by a thread

and the voices in your head

say “just let go”

When you feel torn and down

you try to take a look around

but find

you’re blind

And the time is running out

and you know what it’s about

you can feel that hanging rope

that blade against your throat

and you lean on in….

  1. Every day. Good thing I have a yellow card, and that delays things for about 24 hours. Consequently yellow cards are renewed every 24 hours, so lucky me if I time it right.
