A Short Poem about Extremis

I'm standing in extremis
Metres from my gear
My legs have stared shaking
And it's clearly from the fear

I'm getting tierd, I'm feeling pumnped
I start to thash about
I look down at my last piece
Oh F#@K it's fallen out

Mum never said there'd be days like this
"Gear aplenty" said the book
But they're not standing where I am
There's none wherever l look

I steel myself for a fall
My feet move on the hold
It's now or never I do say
It is time to be bold

I finally reach the summit
After much duress
My belayer swarms up quickly
Without any undue stress

I can't see all the hassle
That was not to hard
I'm not sure what that climb was
It may have been the Bard

So if you go out climbing'
Remember if you fall
That climbing is like sex at times
It's better fun without it, but protection can save us all
