Dissappearing Childhood - say goodbye

A big boy
and a small boy
sprawling
play knuckle bones
on the lounge room floor

at tea time
they put the game away
in a soft green bag
with a little string
that sits on a peg
in a narrow dark corner of their room

they watch the news
as they play with their peas
quietly
not
noisily
together

there’s no show
its not a game
theres no laughter
anymore

Dissappearing Childhood - say goodbye
