You’re Barking Up The Wrong Tree Woman…a pantoum

You’re barking up the wrong tree woman

I haven’t climb up into those branches in decades

It was what you did when finding how far you could go

And who your were in the climb of all that

 

I haven’t climb up into those branches in decades

When youth teased curiosity into that risk

And who your were in the climb of all that

Displayed among leaf and branch nearing the top

 

When youth teased curiosity into that risk

Safety felt better in the way up there in the sky high

Displayed among leaf and branch nearing the top

Earth bound meant a different accountability

 

Safety felt better in the way up there in the sky high

Bravery had it’s perks to the less courageous climber

Earth bound meant a different accountability

Closer to the Sun and sky made breathing easier

 

Bravery had it’s perks to the less courageous climber

It was what you did when finding how far you could go

Closer to the Sun and sky made breathing easier

You’re barking up the wrong tree woman.
