Heave.

This Time I KNOW I’ve got it.
Finally reached the top
Rolling this stupid heavy rock.

Heave.

Inches
Away now
I know this is it.
This time it’ll stay put.

Heave.

Oh, Gods Look!
I did it! It Stayed!
That’ll show you all.

Wait!
No!
Come Back!

NO!

I rush back down chasing after that
Rock.
That Stupid
Rock.

You cause me so much
Trouble…Pain…Suffering…
A lifetime of torment.
