we freely hid from tree to tree,
and sneaked through under table to

innocence, blinded with mountains of
curiosity and fountains of supreme
Clowning and crowning was fully
But frowning and crying was full
suppressed and disallowed.
Dreams were monochrome,
while responsibility was asleep.
Ambition was a joke,
while play was a gift of shift without
Eze went to school with thorn school
uniform, without a pen, book and
school sandals, but still graduated
with flying laughter.
