Rob Schackne #706 - "Boys we mostly"

Boys we mostly
tied things up

to stop them 
moving away
girls found other uses
learnt to skip and leap
and chant their rhymes
we learnt to cuss
unpickable knots
the burn and lash of rope
we started climbing
we faced away
from the drops
we hung by ropes
and shouted for
take in and slack
and only slowly
did we come back

and find our rhythm
