if you fall in the well

Watch where you step
there’s no safety net
If you fall in the well
It’s more bad luck to ya.

It’s dark and it’s deep down in the well
very few scale the steep walls
Sometimes a Samaritan tosses a life line
but it’s always too short
If you grab one, it’s flimsy
You fall to the bottom
Get stuck in the muck with the other
forgottens.

Don’t bother to yell
No one will hear ya.

Watch where you step
There’s no safety net
If you fall in the well
it’s more bad luck to ya.

I wrote this last night for no particular reason. When I saw that the day 12 prompt was to write a poem using alliteration and assonance, I changed a few words and called it day 12.
