A Slippery Slope

You think you stand
on solid ground

Walking the straight
and narrow

A tiny step to the right
or the left
won’t hurt anyone

But it’s a slippery slope

One more stride
to the side
and down you’ll go

And take me with you


It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub and the word of the day is slip. Head on over to see what slippery shenanigans other poets are up to.

    The steps we take make a whole lot of difference in the lives of others… we cannot afford to be selfish ❤️❤️

    A tiny step may lead to another that harms not only oneself but others.

  3. Yes, it’s important to be careful, especially because of that last line. What we do affects other people.
