How Many Times…

I’m not made of rubber 

How many times can I fall from grace?

How many times can I be put in my place?

How many times can I hit the floor?

How many times can I run into that wretched door?

How many times can I fall off that bloody wall?

How quickly we rise, but not as quick as we fall…

But “neigh mind”, they say,

He bounces back just like that rubber ball…

No matter what they say,

I know one day, that ball will bounce no more…

For what goes up, surely must come down.

What goes down goes down forever.

So when I’m down and finally out,

Will you jump up and down on my tomb.
