(It keeps coming up...)
You know, I’ve said it before
Hope doesn’t have any legs.
It’s like a bowl of limp spaghetti
Lying around in a bowl.
I’d say hope doesn’t have any heart, either.
For sure, no balls.
This morning, as I walked by the lake
I didn’t hope all those bits of plastic wouldn’t end up in the lake.
Action’s gonna trump hope every time in my little world….
