Can You

NaPoWriMo

The prompt write a poem that has the same first line as another poem.  The poem I chose is ” When, Like a Running Grave ” by Dylan Thomas

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Can You

When, like a running grave, time tracks you down,

Do you  accept the challenge will you  run with the torch.

Will you  escape along the streets and the avenues of this town.

Waving like a victor garlanded and smiling to each sweetheart on her front porch.

Will you out run the pain , the disappointment and the tick of time.

Can  you ascend to heights not yet dreamed off.

Can you run faster than the wind and destroy the ordinary line.

Yet not give in to the drudgery of  life and love.

Can you, can you or will time you entrap

Then bury you with toil under deaths relentless track.

 

Double wammee!
