He went along
To get along…
The safer thing
He could have done
And after too many
Unhappy returns
Of the day,
All he could
Think to do
Was run…
Was he wise
To keep his
Battles down
In size? Or…
Was it cowardice?
Maybe a bit of both…
He’ll have
Another day…
In another life,
A work in progress

    Isn’t it prudent to keep your battles small. Having too much on one’s plate will overwhelm you

      True, but at the time, it didn’t seem possible. Learned the hard way that it must be.
