Always, always tryin’
to g

are
try-hards better than
try-not-hard-enoughs?

Gettin’ to the depths

will she get stuck
in pur

Ask about,
pry ’til sweet time’ll tell.

She asked and asked,
and never held,
got im
pulse, com-PULSED,
ended up dry as the veldt.

Asked for the leader,
got turned to nine,
demanded fo
r the dealer,
found death in line.

Everybody, everybody’s
tryin’ hard,
but the monkey’s in the barrel,
without a spade in car
