NO LONGER IN PARADISE

NO LONGER IN PARADISE

In Rehab, he did just fine,

So easy to toe the line…

Others decided

His limits contrived,

It was so easy to mind.

At home, rubber meets the road,

The line’s not easily toed…

His shakier quest

Slows progress,

Increasing obedience owed.

Healing time set back

Because of this fellow’s lack…

Of fortitude,

The foolish dude

Has his progress unpacked!
