One Step Back

One step back
To take two forward
But I fell on my back
And got glued to the floorboard.

Everyone’s laughing at my collapse
As they point in cue at the scoreboard
Seeing humour in the fact
I tried to attack and got no reward.

They can laugh today
But I will rise again
And they can clap or laugh away
As they’ll be behind my back by then.
