Round and Round

Trickles of joy sliver down ruby candy apple traces Slope innocent cheeks and naive exuberant faces Round in circles and up and down goes the delight Spinning laughter and giggling all through the night Tinker bells chime on feathered dreams and foot hold Letting go off the reigns Lucy has become rather bold The carousel has come into town with glitter and joy A belly full of swirling and the horse is not from Troy One year of waiting is over and the party proceeds Smiles all around is what the whole planet needs Adults don’t know a thing about life in sweet bubbles If they did it would be safer and fewer in troubles Dad is through with being an adult and hops aboard Grabs the stallion’s mane and soon receives his reward Circus fairground rollercoaster and rotating motion Combine into yearning poured from a pot of love potion Why do we refuse to learn from our wondrous offspring Who drift on meaningful dreams on tender fairy angel wings Call it back to basics sustainability or overdue rejuvenation Join the club and hail our children who deserve our ovation Meanwhile most pleasant dizziness has reached the crowd Who abandon masters of gloom and for once have allowed Emotions to win over hard feelings and misguided reason At the next election I’ll vote for a child at risk of high treason No more wars unicorn in place of tanks and fanciful dress Everything to untangle the shreds of global and personal mess Kids simply know better to enjoy so much infinite beauty Sweeten blows whereas grownups seek plunder and booty Circles have no sharp edges and spheres are hard to eclipse Taking nipper’s advice after all might prevent the apocalypse A jester who removes puppeteer strings unleashes true stride And only a fool would choose not to hop onto one more ride 22nd March 2020
