To & Fro



to & fro we hung a pendulum weighted with steam the ideas will come we’re devising a scheme and there’s a swing to it we’ll work off the swing with a gain in momentum this one’s bound to sting we made light of the gravity poking and prodding the thing then we fueled it until we corrupted it hell-bent on making it swing we hung this pendulum now it’s blowing off steam the ideas still come but we’re revising our theme now there’s a sting to it we’ll work out the sting what we hung as an emblem broke out of its swing
