Ladder

Ladder

This looks easy, up we go! ladder house
Just a few chores don’tcha know.
Gutters, leaves, that’s my biz.
My, how high this ladder is.
I’ll clean up the dirt and soot.
The rungs are shaking underfoot.
I haven’t even reached the roof
I’m nervous and I feel a goof.
I can’t go on I feel such dread,
so rapidly reverse my tread.
I’m feeling like a silly clown.
So much more easy going down.

The path up and down is one and the same.
__Heraclitus
