That first breath of air
after diving too deep,
a hand promptly held
when you started to slip

    That desperate gasp,
    The one you so need.
    It slips like the bowl,
    Now she already weeps.

      what in common have these two:
      an egg white in a bowl
      and you?

      (the answer,
      as I’m sure you knew:
      they’ll both get whipped
      if they pursue)

  2. Clujean Says:

    if whip is what they’ll do,
    Who’ll be to blame,
    The eternal “who”?

  3. mbiaro Says:

    the blame lies
    with those who stay.
    as for the others, who will scold
    if we just drop, cover and hold?:)

  4. Clujean Says:

    For those who duck, who drop and cover
    commendment void implies no sin,
    But sincere commendations.
    And Jack, no gin.
