You know my hills and valleys ’cause “The world done whipped me so”

No excuse needed for being human

“All in one, one is all”

Please, ache, freeze, make

Love, trust, shove, adjust

Tune, shake, swoon, take

Bite, thrust, fight, lust

Eat, shit, cheat, quit

Plot, see, rot, be

Think, split, slink, spit

Smell, pee, sell, agree

Touch, press, smutch, mess

Feel, stall, steal, troll

Lie, guess, die, stress

All is one, one is all.

The Friday Fix Prompt for February 21st, 2020:

“…Child, when do you think is the time to love somebody the most? When they done good and made things easy for everybody? Well then, you ain’t through learning?—?because that ain’t the time at all. It’s when he’s at his lowest and can’t believe in hisself ’cause the world done whipped him so! when you starts measuring somebody, measure him right, child, measure him right. Make sure you done taken into account what hills and valleys he come through before he got to wherever he is.”?—?A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry
