Sweep everything under the carpet!
Like an ostrich, hide your head in the sand!
This has become a game
Of “In-The-Pond, On-The-Bank.
Many were the games we played,
Like unthinking, naive children:
“Hide & Seek”–you hid and I did seek,
But, it’s me who fell down.
We played “Leader, Leader, Change, Change”,
I led, you changed;
The mad swings and wild see-saws,
I took it all, till “I Spied”,
You weren’t playing at all.
Only, I was playing,
A game of ” Solitaire”
In my lonely mind:
And, it isn’t Child’s play anymore.
