For three friends on a playground
no swing equals no fun.
Likewise for square dancers.
Without plucky actors jumping
into parts at a moment’s notice
the show cannot go on.
Without a running back
releasing toward the sideline
what other option
does a panicky quarterback have?
Deprived of unbiased voters
and impartial judges
politics would be pig-headed
and the law locked up.
Frankly, if you can’t change
with the times, move
with the moment, then
it just don’t mean a thing.
