Imagine this if you will
Gladly going about your daily business
Being stopped by a suited man armed with a smile and a clipboard
Who says excuse me Mum may i bother you for a second ?
I am currently conducting a survey
I know you enjoy and like to play and carry on regardless
with reckless ??????
Are you fond of games ?
And are you fond of solving puzzles ?
Good then riddle me this ?
Do you know what word ?
I am trying to describe by means of using alternatives defined in or by a thesaurus ?
Still stuck ?
Well here is your final clue that even you surely
are to cold and calculated to miss
It's a child's greatest nightmare and fear
And the cruelest thing a mother could ever do
