Jump and skip

Jump and skip
And escape the onslaught
Of the rapidly rotating rope.

Although the rope is
Under control
In your hands,
Time your jumps
According to the movement
Of the rope
To help skip
And avoid the pain
Of the whip.

Practice such escapes.
Life is such a rope
But without your control

Be alert
and plan cautiously
To problems that come unannounced

Just be prepared to
jump and skip.
