TugO’War (for Java, I get it)

I have tried

God knows how

I have tried

Standing on my

Side and holding

This rope letting

You win and

Drag me through

The mud of

Your life hoping

To eventually pull

You back through

To my side

But no once

I was winning

You dropped your

Rope knee deep

In mud saying

I’d rather stay

Here and wallow

Staring in disbelief

Pleading asking why

I dropped mine

And returned home

Letting you stay

Where you’ve always

Wanted to be

In your mud

But now I

Understand why whereas

Your mud is

Knee deep my

Mud’s deep enough

To drown in
