Keep Off Hill

“Keep off the hill!”
they said to me
with a finger wag
and scowl

“You’ll catch your death
on slippery slopes!”
I heard them
clear and loud

…but, did I listen to them?
Without a word
I backed away
ignoring angry howls

With a defiant leap
and unseen smile
right over the fence
I sailed

Not one glance back
Up the hill I went
Far from their
beaten trail

    Mr. I – yup. it’s a tough job – but, somebody has to be the rebel. I don’t think I ever went too far up the hill though.. somehow, always made it with minimum scrapes and bruises…

talk to me...
