Children - Poem by M.L. Squier
People are hippies, dopedealers (mostly
And lonely old ladies and gentlemen
ordained by a headless horseman
with muscular flanks
in you and me.
Children are people
who are not hippies, business men,
lonely old ladies or gentlemen
or shipwrecked idealists
Children are flowers, trees, butterflies,
birds and bees who constantly keep a sense
of humor and sadness around hippies, business
men, lonely old ladies and gentlemen and
shipwrecked idealists who talk about God (who
might be a business man) with muscular flanks
galloping, galloping in you and me.
