Today's words are Grip, Prefer, Thread.
The thread now in Clotho's tight grip
Atropos is trying to clip
I'd prefer it stay long
The line is still strong
For Lachesis wove it with a whip
UPDATE: By popular demand, here's a link to an article about the three Fates: fair Lachesis who sees what was, strong Clotho who sees what is and old Atropos who sees what is to come.
