Closer and Closer to the End

Downhill

Maybe
Sisyphus was grateful
For the break...
While the rock rolled,
He rested.
For only a moment, I know.
Then back to the push.

Or was he tempted
To tumble down after the rock?
Always easier going downhill...

Nicely done. . . but it makes me a bit sad. . . does it you? Or is it just the state I'm in?

Would've been much more fun for Sisyphus! Enjoyable poem :)

I tell the story of Sisyphus in Chapter I of my novel (thankfully on in verse) ... I think he takes his time going back for the rock.

Marty said...

That was supposed to be NOT in verse.

DANG!
