WORSTWARD HO BY SAMUEL BECKETT

Second last. Nearly done. Say one. Say none. Till nohow on. At last.

At last. Say done. Say book. Say read. Again. Misread? Again.

A man and child. Holding on. Till end. Till done. Till nohow on.

Hand in hand. Hold and held. Not one. Become one. Then fade.

Old man. Up and stand. Up and done? No. Bit by bit. Old age and done.

Old age and done. On no more. On ground. In ground. In earth. Then done.

In ground. Now gone. Say book. Say read. Say read again. Till nohow on.
