Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Slippage
 

 


Of reaching the zenith
there’s little hope,
climbing hand over hand on a
well greased rope.

Though my hands are calloused,
they fail to grip.
into the abyss of abject madness
I progressively slip.

Talk to me quickly before my
mind dissipates.
Eternal futility grins manically,
it patiently waits.

The knot at the end waylays the
slippage a titch,
but the reality of the finale is a
son of a bitch.
