Steps (Extended Version)


One step up,

Then one step down.

Two steps up,

Then one back down.

Then one step up,

And, ah! Upwards you go.

With both feet on the landing,

No verticals to obstruct.

Smooth planes for miles.

Your mind dashing through the aisles.

Still, turn to the left,

Toes bump the vertical,

You stand still,

Preparing for the uphill.

On you go, one step up.

And then one step down.

Take two steps up,

But then one down.

Step up, and up,

Then up, then up!

To reach the top,

And never stop,

To drop or flop,

Slop, sop, or swap!

No plane goes on forever,

But find yourself an endeavor

And you shall collect your pleasure.
