– crunch –

Put your faith in me,

such a strange stranger.

Put your trust in me,

yes, you can.

A deadline is a deadline,

I know too well the danger,

but a man of my word?

Yes, I am.

 

I

played the fool a time or two, no

confidence in the craft, instead of

asking,

questioning,

learning… Don’t

send me to the lonely room in

all the aftermath, for there’ll be

weeping,

drowning,

burning.

 

Put your weight on me,

such a linear load.

Put your task on me,

stern and still.

A set goal is a set goal,

I know too well the road,

but getting through the finish line?

Yes, I will.
