    The Escalator

    I haven't posted anything for a while so here you go:

    The Escalator

    I once was scared that escalators
    Sucked kids through their teeth
    And mauled them 'til they screamed in pain
    And mooshed them down beneath

    Janitors would swab their blood
    And flush it down the drain
    Their bones would get stuck in the mop
    And stab into their brain

    None would let their mothers know
    What had become their fate
    They would walk oblivious
    Right past that sewer grate

    But here it comes, I have arrived
    I'm at the stairway top
    I know I'll beat my fear someday
    But until then I'll hop
    If you look at my profile, say "Hi!" But not in a creepy way.

    I loved it!
    I threw a glance at humankind and saw them treacherous and feeble.
    Severe judges, cruel, unkind and fools who are always close to evil.
    Before their frightful, anxious mob, indifferent hate forever rages.
    Not learnt the lessons from the ages!
    What use are wise and tempered words?
    "Sometime, in my sweet blindness" - Pushkin

    Loved this. I'll make the grandchildren read it before I take them shopping - give me a bit of leverage
