Help Me Save One At A Time

Help me save the children from rage and hopelessness,
Bring your optimistic lanterns, and your jubilant joy sticks.

Meet me in a half hour in the gazebo in the park.
Bring all the children you can find along the way.
Use your magic flutes and faeries to get them out of their houses

I have sent others ahead with a scrumptious meal to fill their tummies,
Gypsies are bringing art supplies that will help them fill the town with creativity.
Let’s dance our dance and sing our songs, and bring all the children we can find.

Invite all the poets, singers, artists, pet-lovers, enthusiastic adults and dancers.  
We need all the lovers of life, the spreaders of happiness, and the proponents of joy
If we are to save the children.

We can start immediately, saving one at a time.

The art supplies are so vastly important, as is the imagination - but most of all, the sense of play.

Now that sounds like a lot of fun; who knew saving children could be such a thrill? Not a bad idea at all.

I am perpetually ready to save them. Perpetually ready to wipe hopelessness and despair out of their little hearts. It takes a village however, which is why I am calling all poets to join me.
