"Leave the twitter and the twaddle / Nevermore to mollycoddle / These damned and draining fools / Life's to enjoy"

One Girl One Boy: Play With Me


for my friend Chanti


My friend and fellow-victim at the hands

Of hysterical and histrionic

Friendly enemies with insane demands

No sense of humor and unironic

So lost within themselves they cannot see

The light which shines for them this very hour:


If they won't have it then let's you and me

Enjoy it nor let their dark souls devour

Those black holes take the glories of this day

By which our God would beckon us away

Into the life intended for us here

A life of light and love and quiet joy

Thus let us leave behind the pain and fear

To step into the sun one girl one boy


Leave the twitter and the twaddle

Nevermore to mollycoddle

These damned and draining fools

Life's to enjoy

And we are not their tools

Step into the sun and play with me

One girl one boy

We'll all be better off you'll agree


And they'll just have to work it out on their own

We'll say "We've gone out to play: leave us alone"

Yes, leave us alone and let us play...I love this! Ah, how so may of us get caught up in life that we forget.......

That is a lovely tribute to someone very special, Stevie. I relate to this because a lot of people say that I never "grew up." I don't take it as an insult even if it's meant derogatorily. Love, peace, and strength to you. Regis

My dear friend...
Thank you for this touching tribute. I know that we both have experience of traumatic love. It is good to know that we can still play.
