these children

I’m defending

innocent and beautiful

 

circle us elder

so concerned

that we see but rarely

 

ask honestly

or just do something.

 

better to ask

forgiveness than permission.

 

these children guessed

and we, so much wiser

told them what was true

 

since down we forgot

as up we grew.
