Ditty

 
There’s a little
big pond
of which I’m
none too
fond
 
In high parleys
called
The Slough
of Despond

 
If you and I
some day
could with love
and life
abscond

 
Build a
little trust
in a true to
life bond

 
Then would I
be free
of that
little big
pond
 
And there’d
be no striving
to ever
crawl beyond
 
That unremitting
quagmire
called
the Slough
of Despond
 
Of which
as I said
I am none
too fond
 
If only
I could
slough it
with a wave
of my wand!
