Fallen Over


I cannot see behind me
I can't see the road ahead
I can see the sky above me
So I know I am not dead
I must have fallen over
And landed on my back
But how the hell I got this way
Is a memory that I lack
I don't think someone hit me
There's no blood upon my face
I can't have slipped on a wet floor
Because rain there is no trace
I think I should stop lying here
And get up on my feet
You never know I might be charged
With littering the street.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
