And here is my submission to Linda Kruschke’s Paint Chip poetry challenge for this week.

There’s quicksand by the pearly gates
for those who wander off the way,
who love the breezy, sleazy mud.
Then pleasure pops – another dud.
On pins and needles now they say,
“Let’s try again!” And there they stay.
