You are never too old to draw with crayons
The seriousness of life
it can get you down
or just lurk
masquerading as proper grown up behaviour
no room for a dinosaur onsie
or missing the cracks as you walk down the pavement.
In the middle of the lie,
Called acting your age,
there is no room for wonder-in-the-moment…
Break out, live now, before the moment passes!
Watch a snail make its progress down the path,
look up as clouds pass you by,
buy clam shell ice cream from the Mr Whippy van
and never mind the ice cream running over your fingers.
But most of all,
and please don’t forget,
you are never too old to draw with crayons.
