Mobeus Strip

Write a poem based on the concept or idea of a "Mobeus strip".

If you're like me and don't know much about this, Make it up!

*If you *want to* you can connect your poem to other poems already posted. I say that because I did that, in keeping (sort of, maybe?) with the Mobeus Strip idea. Maybe you can execute it more successfully than I!
