‘When climbing the O2’

When climbing the O2

it is essential to take H2O, too,

to drink;

or you might sink

into a dehydration tank

and, then, who would you have to thank?

Whilst climbing, remember,

that when you get to the top …


For continuing might be effort in vain.

And what have you to gain,

when the summit is achieved,

and you have breathed

the higher air …



One day, soon, you will be allowed back down

to the ground,

where the rest of the tired

can be found.
