Rock Paper Scissors


Rock, paper, scissors; my heart it is fragile
My baby lives now in this world; am I agile

Enough to survive; if the papers on top
Of the scissors, or then; if the stone's offered up

To crush the shears metal, can I stay alive?
It's scary how delicate things are alive;

Rock; my heart sinks like the stone in the well;
If she dash her foot, then just take me to hell-

Paper; a cut to the heart is such pain;
Would I want to bring her to life here again-

Scissors; never cut her soul loose from mine
What words on mere paper could ever define?

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
