The Tv Washes Away The Day

New bag, strange clothes, so far away
From home and all that’s safe and known
The TV washes away the Day

The school bell rang the time to play
One out of thirty, he’s alone
The TV washes away the Day

Little and worried. He must stay
Till night, when he sits still as stone
The TV washes away the Day

School gates are locked. No getaway
Rules, rules. Big boys don’t cry or moan
The TV washes away the Day

Don’t carry tales, the bullies say
His safety props are overthrown
The TV washes away the Day

Nothing about him will betray
The terrors of that first school zone
The TV washes away the Day
He’s home, and all is safe and known
