People Choose To Lay Up On Their Backsides


'I have suffered this.
I have suffered that.'

'I have suffered this.
And,
I suffer from that.'

Hear them talk about their pains,
And those agonies they reveal.

'I have suffered this.
I have suffered that.'

And...
Listen how they boast about,
Reasons why they choose NOT to heal.

'I have suffered this.
And,
I suffer from that.'

People like to stay flat on their back-
Sides!
People like to moan and that's a fact.

People like to stay flat on their back-
Sides!
People like to feel that keep it real...
To suffer!

'I have suffered this.
I have suffered that.'

'I have suffered this.
And,
I suffer from that.'

'I have suffered this.
I have suffered that.'

'I have suffered this.
And,
I suffer from that.'
And...
People choose to lay up on their backsides!
Listen to their reasons NOT to heal!

'I have suffered this.
I have suffered that.
I have suffered this.
And...
I suffer from that.'

People choose to lay up on their backsides!

    Harmonious poetic repetition may be monotonous if ilt is absent of good, stuctural movement...otherwise.and in the case of this work of yours, the Readers eyes, and sense of rhythm is tickled and nourished as ones ears are to the melodious echo of while standing dead center of a canyon and shouting skyward...Good quilling ~FjR~ (Report) Reply
