Watching events unfold

Back in the nursery
back for a cursory look at
what passed between
then and the here now

a mobile turns
no child ever learns from this
except how to be dizzy.

Off to the playground as
the mobile turns round,

here and then and
we become men as we’re
all bound to do.

Busy with programmes
poetry and web cams
back to the nursery
still learning the ropes.
