The Dull Knife & The Absurd Weed

Reply Fri 4 Jan, 2013 04:22 am
Take a dull knife
and cut at the dirt
in a hopeless attempt
to dig

Get at that root
of the consuming weed
dig with the dull knife
and cut out it's source
of life

The dirt is cold
the knife is dull
the root
of the weed
is stubbornly thick

It may take for ever
your wrist will ache
your forearm will burn
and your mind
will run dry
in the thinking well

you will eventually
kill that absurd weed
with roots
that sink deep
