Poem:Escape

You guys are going to have to be patient with this one. I was trying to write an entry for our Discord server’s call for submissions, and I thought I would practice rhythm in my poetry. Key word being practice, though. Sigh. Would that identifying stressed and unstressed syllables in English were less…well, stressful. Sorry to inflict this on you, but if I don’t practice I’ll never get better. Actually, do you have any suggestions on how I can improve? Do let me know! I’d love to give it a try.


ESCAPE

You are not safe.

The walls are closing in on you and me

We are like rats in a trap, stuck and caught

Try hard to wriggle, wriggle free and be

Just like the man, he calls himself Scott Free

But that is not my name. And it’s not yours.
