 Lead Leads

Is it a quirk of the English language

that ‘lead’ - go forward

stay in front

be the leader

of the pack,

the country,


and ‘lead’ - the metal

sinks into the abyss

as low as it can get.

Perhaps that’s where leaders lead us


hanging on

a plumb line

to the depths

and will we have plump plums for tea

down there

in the abyss.

I doubt it.
