One Mistake

December 27, 2007
One mistake,
And then another.
The ice is growing thin

Another lapse in concentration,
And you’ve lost all chance to win.

Careful now, watch your step.
There’s quite a way to fall.
Well I guess that’s inevitable
When you attempt a ladder this tall

Time is running short,
Luck is running low.
All that time and hardwork,
And what do you have to show?

Your foot misses a rung ,
And your fingers lose their grip.
The ladder becomes a snake,
And down you start to slip.

Your mind is spinning,
Sweat is forming,
You try to reach a truce.
Pretty soon you’ll figure out.
You can’t bargain with a noose.
