Life and It’s Ladders – Written October 2011 (Aged 36)

Life and It’s Ladders

i have not got this far
without being
a little wily on these legs
i have not got this far
without being just a little shrewd
some would say,
friendly or a little crude
but,
that is just how it is
pick out the psychology if you must
escapology,
and if you want trust
then find a way out of this truss
i have not got this far
without a little know how
and to know how it is done
and to this personal party
many things have come along
life and its ladders,
finding each and every rung




James Garratt – October 2011
