The World Could Be Falling Downhill





I was walking in yesterday’s deluge

up a steep moldy hillside

Talking to my fading shadow

That was stalking deep puddles

While I was balking today’s thunderbolts



My knees were knocking in fright

and my hips were like, a rocking Noah’s Ark

hawking leftover manure in the dark



Nature’s mocking the world full of old lonely hearts

And blocking this year’s already drowning restart
