A Support

A sling, a sling

A temporary thing

Let it preserve and protect

Let its knot graze your neck

Let it support the hanging weight

It’s anxious to ameliorate

Pull it as tight as it will go

You can loosen it (for show)

Remain comfortably contused

Until the tissues all are fused

Recover, repair and heal

Until your bone’s shot through with steel
