Oh, how they do kick the can down the road, sir.

Kickest thou the can
down the road, sir?
That I do, sir.

Doest thou continually kick the can
down the road, sir?
That I do, sir!

Why kickest thou the can so obsessively
down the road, sir?
That I do, but, but

Everybody said:
kick the can
down the road, sir.
Everybody complained
somebody keeps kicking the can
down the road, sir.
Everybody opined
those guys shouldn’t be kicking that dam can
down the road.
Everybody asked
why do they continue to kick that can
down the road?

Then one day the road
ended at a cliff, sir.

Everybody said:
don’t kick the can
over the cliff, sir.
Everybody complained
somebody wants to kick the can
over the cliff, sir.
Everybody opined
Nobody should kick that dam can
over the cliff.
Everybody asked
why do they–

There it goes!

Who?! What?!Whoa!
It landed  on the road below!
But  then everybody saw
some fool, what a toad!
still kicking the can
down the road!

Everybody asked
how doeth he still kick that can
down yonder road, sir?
I kid you not; ’tis true,
and Life goes on down the road, sir, down the road.
Can you?

Glass half-Full
