Through the cracks darkness creeps
Daily it lurks and peeps
Death lurks in its lair
Stench in the air

Seal the cracks
No more broken back
Let it rot in its den
Write its obituary in pen

Twinge of pain to let go
Smash it with truthful blow
Grief and suffering surge
Sound the mournful dirge

Love's calm sea settles
You've discover your tough metal
Scarred and bruised
Strengthened and renewed
