“Kicking the Can Down the Road”

 

Kicking the can down the road.

Bear the load?

Kicking the can,

sight unseen.

Beyond horizon,

at last carefree.

 

Kicking the can down the road.

Past the fence.

No consequence.

Main event?

Build suspense.

 

Kicking the can down the road.

Overload.

Do you suppose,

it will hold?

 

Kicking the can down the road.

Yet again,

to the end.

 

Kicking the can down the road.

Hopes, bereft.

 

Kicking…no room left
