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 Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
