Behind This Four Walls - Poem by Billy Simani

Behind this four walls,
I've seen my babies crawl,
Underneath the wishful wells,
I've watched my penny fall,
Still I choose to stay,
Isolated and far away,

I've lived in hope of sunlight,
But all I get is twilight,
Under the black night I hope for twinkle,
And the blue skies I need glitter and sparkle,
Still I choose to stay,
Isolated and far away,

Everything I have is willy nilly,
My sole heir is a silly Billy,
And my two daughters in nitty gritty,
Think am an old nitwit and crazy,
Still I choose to stay,
Isolated and far away,

My husband was a fuddy duddy,
With a pot belly trying to look dandy,
He got drunk, drowned and found in a beach so sandy,
And now my babies are left with no daddy,
Still I choose to stay,
Isolated and far away,

Behind this four walls,
Ill crumble and fall,
Clogging the wishful wells,
Are the pennies that fell after all?
Still I choose to stay,
Isolated and far away,
