Springboards And Jump Starts



a springboard is where you stand
take a deep breathe, or two
gather your wits before the altar
prepare to sacrifice your limbs
(only the ones who fell for this)
call for a matchmaker
pray to God for a spark
hope like hell it don’t rain
notice you’ve quit breathing again

confidence mounts to rival high BP
adrenalin bequeaths a killer rush!
breathe, baby, breathe
and a one, and a two, and a
