Can someone throw me a line?
I beseech you! A line, please――

I thought I could swim.
I thought I was ready

To test these new waters,
But now I’m sinking.

My limbs have tired out
from fighting the currents.

Now I float here, motionless,
My efforts for naught.

Oh, for a life preserver!
For a sign of hope!

Come and save me!――

Too late――

I’m done.
