 Jonathon never owned
              a pair of shoes
              or a football
              or a bicycle
Jonathon never heard 
              a bird sing
              or a stream flow
              or his parents cry
Jonathon  never saw
               the crisp white snow
               or a golden sunrise
               or his fourth birthday
Jonathon’s world was
               four sterile white walls
Jonathon ‘s toys were
                medical machines
Jonathon  could 
                smile occasionally 
       Oh boy
             could smile
