Watts in a Handshake

Early experience struck me a heavy blow
but my will to live was stronger
left with half a mind to sort misgivings
and eke out a living for my son and me
to make my life a merry adventure
and lend new meaning to the term ‘success’

*

Struck up a conversation with god
the Father of all Mankind
– ripe or rotten fruits –
we come plucked from the same stalk
to meet with a nod of approval
or to be cast onto the pyres of hell
