[K] (v)

imagine a childhood sling
the kind you weren’t allowed
able to sling a house

too many four year olds
lost their parents by mistake
when playing with their sling

they weren’t annoyed
or angry or silly
just playing with their sling

one moment of inattention by the mother
and who knows where she and the house
and daddy are

the worst is when a four year old
flings the sling    doesn’t click
and slings the neighbours’ houses too

one poor child
got so carried away with play
he slung his entire town away

and that’s why
slings are banned

and that’s why
modern towns are so horrible

no playful child has slung the horrible houses away
while mother was distracted
by her family’s horrible fate
