Hard Times

I fell on Hard Times

and Hard Times looked at me

and said:

‘Do you mind not falling

quite so hard if you please?

Why don’t you try

giving Tough Break a go?

He’s stronger than me

and this much I know,

I’m afraid all these falls

are hurting my back

and I really don’t have

what it is that you lack.

If only I could stand

then I might get the chance

to walk a little, do a little

on my own poor behalf.

So please, oh please

don’t go falling on me:

get up and go out

and set us both free!’
