The Up And Down Comes To Town!


A to and fro.
A fro and to.
A down in tow.
An up for you.

Round and in.
In and round.
Lose to win.
Sand to pound.

Jig and dig.
Claw and strike.
Re-dig and re-jig,
Take another hike.

A hike through trees.
A hike over land.
Sometimes a breeze.
Sometimes ever so bland.

A flip and flop.
A flop and flip.
Something shall drop.
Blip...blip...blip.

Mark up and down.
Mark down and up.
Can see through your gown.
That may be a hiccup.

Expenses and free.
Free and expenses.
Oh golly gee,
Look, more fences.

Value and lost.
Alive and ghosted.
A make or a cost,
The past is hosted.

Like or hate.
Not or do.
Early or late.
Could be times two.

The flip and flip.
The up and down.
Every day a trip,
From golden to brown.

Don't you love the ups and downs? Insecurities sure can cause frowns. But then comes the smiles. Always much along the many miles. Do you see the light, so to speak? Or are you always up shit creek? Things do turn and always return. So best to toss those insecurities in the fire and let them burn. Or just act nuts with each pass. That works well for my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  1. The Up And Down Comes To Town!
    Cover matters for the next round
    Give and take
    Up the stakes
    Insecurities meant to be abandoned

  10. I love to be up and hate being down
    because it causes too many frowns
    who wants to look sad
    or even feel mad
    when we can feel happy
    and maybe even a bit sappy
    Must better than pounding sand
    unless I'm laying out in the sun at my land.

    (PS: I owe you and email!!)

  12. I'm at a writing conference as I type this. It's kind of inspiring, so maybe I'm not so insecure at the moment. lol

  13. Ups and downs all around
    that is the way it seems to me
    but then it is better than plain old bland
    makes one a bit more free

  16. Love the ups. Hate the downs. But once you're on the ride, those are the choices.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Tis better to trip
    than to stay in a rut
    I'd rather get moving
    thank lounge on my butt
    Then again, that's not true
    Laziness will always do.

    ReplyDelete
  18. What you say is so true. It can be down, and then it can go back up.

    ReplyDelete
  19. All we can really do about the ups and the downs
    Is take the downs with the up without any frowns.

    1. That we can do
      Have to take them through and through

  20. Guess we have to take the downs with the ups and make the best of everything.

  21. I think one of the wisdoms that comes with age is the motto that "this too, shall pass" But sometimes the down is so deep, not even the most optimistic of us can see the up.

    1. Yep, sometimes those downs go into a deep dark hole
      No fun acting like a mole

  22. What goes up must come down,
    but I prefer what goes down must come up.
    Yup!

  29. Without the valleys, we wouldn't appreciate the beauty of the mountains nearly as much. Keeping the good times in mind helps us endure the tough times, safe in the knowledge that "this, too, shall pass."

    1. Yep, have to keep that in mind
      And know that another mountain we shall find
