On The Edge Of Generalisations

On the edge of generalisations

Heels attempting grip, curled to mould

Toes hanging over, body backwards

Willing anti-gravity to hold

On the edge of generalisations

Tongue refusing words that will divide

Rearranging syllables pending speech marks

Trying to keep the rational on side

On the edge of generalisations

Dismissing view that plummets dirty depths

Eyes ahead, around, must pivot upwards

Avoiding dizzy drop over the ledge

On the edge of generalisations

The rocks below are sharp and barbed by wire

Sweeping as they do around circumference

Fringing predators are aiming higher

On the edge of generalisations

Must resist the urge to just let go

To answer vitriol of venom’s forked tongue

Perception’s suicide beckons below

On the edge of generalisations

Whistling in the wind at raging crash

Smears and sound bites’ horrid accusations

Watching dignity and dialogue smash

On the edge of generalisations

Heels are hurting, eyes are peeking down

To just let go, return the favour likewise

Demise of due decorum with one sound

On the edge of generalisations

Erosion at the nub of tipping point

Resist the fall, the ledge is holding, mainly

A bitten tongue in cheek will not rejoin

On the edge of generalisations

Aggghhh! Or ahhh! Or ah! must be the choice

Get a grip, engage prehensile foothold

Some balance ere generalisations given voice
