Inside The Crazy Rut - Poem by Elizabeth Barry

Turning inside out and hanging upside down
Can’t seem to shake the deep set weary frown
this Messed up tired out brain is losing common sense
Wall’s of protection soon go up it’s the first line of defence.

Shake from side to side and rattle in the ear
The words of Rudyard Kipling but please do make them clear
“If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs”
Maybe you'll make it to tomorrow and into your coming years.

And the crap that you do swallow which is stuck deep in the gut
Can be taken out precisely with one clean careful cut
Or if you want to be brutal you could kick it up the butt
Shake your head and let it go get yourself out of the crazy rut! ! !
