Wrote this one as a teenager. Just more fun with ideas and rhymes.

Descending to the deepest pit
Ascending to the sky
Groveling in the mud and dirt
And through the clouds to fly

Whistling along the narrow path
Hurtling down the road
Skipping light without a care
Burdened with a load

Flighty as a feather
Solemn as the grave
High and mighty as a King
Mischievous as a knave

Healthy as a horse, they say
Sick as local leper
Bland and tasteless as the ground
Seasoned with salt and pepper

Smooth as newly polished glass
Rough as old tree bark
Off the center, wide and high
Squarely on the mark


Totally agreeing
At odds with one another
This is the last line of all.

For I will not write another.
