Silly Shorts 4

You can’t see the tree,
Yet still you care.
The wall’s blocking your view,
But you know that it’s there.

You grab a ladder,
And climb to the top,
But you can’t get over.
It’s too-far of a drop.

So, you climb back down
And grab some rope.
But, it’s too short.
You begin to lose hope.

You start to cry…
And then you get mad…
So you get a sledgehammer
That you borrow from Dad.

But, it’s way too heavy.
You’re just too small.
“What else can I use
To break-through this wall”?

You-run-back to-dad’s-workshop.
You grab a hammer and-drill.
You think, “if one doesn’t work,
The other one will”.

But, neither tool works.
You can’t break through.
You couldn’t climb over.
What will you do?!

You think and think,
But you just don’t know.
You feel like quitting,
But you don’t want to-go.

You nearly give up.
“This wall is too big”!
But, right at that moment…
“I got it! I’ll dig”!

You grab the shovel
As quick as you can.
You’re proud of yourself.
You have a plan!

And, it works!
You’re now with the tree.
You look up in the branches.
It’s what you were hoping to see!

Your cat!

You get her down safely,
Which isn’t too tough,
Compared to the wall.
“Boy that was rough”!

Fine tooth comb,
Locked away.
Detail’s devil,
Here to play.

Not surprised.
He reared his head.
Ugly sucker’s
Face is red.

He’s got the horns.
He’s filled with hate.
He’s got you now.
You’re just too late.

Sees right through you,
And eats your heart.
Bit by bit,
Rips you apart.

Heed the warnings.
Mind the deets.
Buckle up.
Put on your cleats.

Have a helmet.
Take a bat.
Prepare to swing.
Expect a rat.

Become complacent,
Trouble looms.
Watch the sky.
Look out for brooms.

Catch twenty two
At every turn.
Embrace the failures.
Seek and learn.

Be-not affraid-though
To take a chance.
Better that
Than miss the dance.
