CB (May 3,1962 / United States)

Mr. Freedom

Little rhythms in my life
Echo back and forth
Like toy soldiers in a line
And pushed down again
By a ten-year old
Child with sticky
Fingers and a pet
Toad nearby.

'Time for bed
Little soldier.'
'No mission accomplished today
Captain.'
'Oh, well,
Try again tomorrow
Sargent,
Try again tomorrow.'
