H.A.L.T. REPRISE…#1.

H.A.L.T. REPRISE…# 1.

Hunger, Anger, loneliness and exhaustion,

Wheedling the guard of the bastion…

Into opening gates,

For thin-ice skates

Throwing away the drawstrings of caution!

Loneliness, Tiredness–both–

Wearing down adherence to oath…

Got to stay strong,

Keep moving along,

Avoiding the slitting of throat.
