THE MOOD OF THE PENDULUM

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Jul 08, 2016

The pendulum swings
slowly and creaks,
The pendulum is spooky
it attracts the freaks.
The pendulum lives in
a basement of a castle,
The pendulum is waiting
to cause you some hassle.

The pendulum is like the
mind, I changes its speed
of use.
But sometimes when it
panics, it can call a truce.
The pendulum just hangs
there - dormant and so
lame.
It can transform your 
world - and never take
any blame.

Just keep on watching the
pendulum - it does invite
you in.
Into it's murky world of
pain - challenging the sin.
The pendulum is like love,
it can hurt your body so.
It is also like the brain - 
making you feel low.

Say hello to the pendulum,
it awaits you all right now.
It knows what you are
doing - its ghastly and I
bow!
The pendulum starts to
swing - but who will be
the victim?
Just close your eyes, my
friends - and I hope you
all can swim!      

The world of the pendulum,
is a spooky old affair.
The blade will cut you - cause 
lots of wear and tear!
Just be aware of the pendulum,
as it rests for a while.
True love verses the
pendulum - or am I going
all senile?
