DIY for a Carousel of Dreams

Covid 19 leaves restless kiddies with parents’ imagination at home So why not create fantasy in the lounge for a resilient pleasure dome Grannies’ chest of drawers comes alive as a goal with lace for a net No offside rule here as she watches from above and hedges a bet Please clear all those trinkets and porcelain figures from the top Ronaldo needs safe play when beating isolation from the penalty spot Magic carpets swirl kindly when Daddy turns on that powerful hoover A broom for propulsion transforms into a practical boredom remover Chandeliers are useful for swinging from when tedium starts to beckon But they are intricate carousels and swirl pleasure round don’t you reckon Hang on tight and beware of the hard floor made from antique floor tiles If you land softly play hop scotch and twister to keep busy for a while Monopoly puzzles and scrabble are more entertaining than news from TV Planes crafted from newspaper are not only useful for that piddle or wee The circus has come to town and first prize goes to Mom’s swivel chair Stand two to a seat and close eyes for heightened senses if you so dare Make you own Rubik cube from scrap and swirl the brain tease ad infinitum Imagine you’re on a spell rollercoaster make new words like squanticotycon Musical chairs come in handy to the sound of overt defiance over the virus Compared to computer games ballet or dance on the piano are more desirous With a tool kit and Mom’s motor bike craft crankshafts gears and bearing The sky is the limit with spokes from wheels and hooter for emergency flaring Suspension rods invite to navigate back paddle and circle from kitchen to loo And please save paper rolls for teammates to wipe sweat from their brows too 22nd March 2020
