Come To The Edge - Poem by Christopher Logue

Come to the edge.
We might fall.
Come to the edge.
It's too high!
COME TO THE EDGE!
And they came,
and he pushed,
And they flew.

    This is a quote (paraphrased badly) not an original poem.
    “Come to the edge, he said.
    We can't, we're afraid! they responded.
    Come to the edge, he said.
    We can't, We will fall! they responded.
    Come to the edge, he said.
    And so they came.
    And he pushed them.
    And they flew.” Guillaume Apollinaire 19th C. Poet and Journalist.
