Non Poetry from my upcoming book

Atlas Carrying on

If I had just one sincere buddy
I surely could move the world
It’s not that I am sort of lazy you see
It’s just too big to hold

Not that the world’s too heavy for me
It’s lopsided and awkward
I carry it onward, inch by inch forward
I can’t afford to flinch

Nor shirk nor rest. This awful test
Weighs heavy on poor Apollo
The world astride his able arms
Knows nothing of his contest
