Helter Skelter #ekphrastic

Helter Skelter.

I live the helter skelter life,

Round and round and round,

Sliding away from where I was.

But where I was, was not right,

Round and round and round,

Sliding towards where I will be.

Back up the stairs through the darkness,

Will I make the top,

Again and again and again.

Just walk away, away, away

From the bollocks of the

Helter skelter life style of

Climbing life’s greasy pole

Only to be knocked back down.
