in a vibrant hopscotch

darning needle arms fling

feet pepper fine and tapered

steady and sharp like bee stings

it's time we send dem packing

bait slate boat race

flat manners, drift swift as the crow flies

and glide

man said

shriekers cyaa hide

boots and leathers unbalance

'if it wasn't for those meddling kin'
