My project has gone pear-shaped,
Leaving me in total confusion;
What am I going to do now?
On this project I staked my all;
Everything has fallen overboard;
My foot moves on black soil;
Can anybody advise me on this?
I need your help, please;
Do not leave me in the cold;
Doesn’t man live by man?
I wish to express gratitude to Indishe and topomzblog for the idioms they sent to SIWO and which inspired me to write this poem.
