Upon a Stool

Upon a Stool

Once upon a time

I sat alone

With nothing more than cold, damp stone.

Upon a stool

I sat and sat

And thought about

The fool

I’d been.

At times I’d shout

But no one came

Much to my chagrin.

I wasn’t meant

To be let out.

There was no doubt

That I’d been bad,

And caused others

To be very sad.

Those with clout

Set my punishment,

And so I sat

Amongst the stone.

All alone.

Yes,

There were times

I thought that

I’d go mad.

But then the light

Would shine bright

And hope restored

my inner lad.
