What an ugly thing.

This? It is but a little string.
It can’t harm you.

Avert your eyes
And before you realize
The little strings become the net
You cannot escape.

Each week on Sunday the Monkey Man gives a challenge to write a poem in only 160 characters. Like writing a tweet – it takes some doing to convey thought in so few words. Come join the fun!

Those little strings can be what defines us.

No strings attached? Hardly. A single string and weave to a web. Great 160. Thanks for playing.

Very profound. We're often ensnared by strings that are easily broken, but we haven't the will to do it because we think the strings are chains.
