Child’s Play

In the room there were three chairs
But four people staggered in
Susie, Sally, Sam, and Susan
Painting, waving, calling out for something

Susie stared at Susan
Sam reached for Sally
No one wanted to finish the game
They all ran, holding hands

Pairs sat on two chairs
The door slammed shut thundering
Laughter filled the air
“Smart move,” echoed in the room

All four froze for a second
They saw each other
Tears flowed on their cheeks
Could it be real?

IT’s DoNe!

Four young girls stood
A sweet small smile formed slowly
Laughter filled the air
The floor was a dazzling red

Who said it’s done?

I want another game.
