Mankind at play

Some words I’d like to say
About the things we do instead, about the games we play:
It’s not just diversion, it’s distraction that we seek
We want to hide from the cold, hard, facts because we’re weak

It’s joy and escapism to flee the world we build
Because it’s hard to face the harsh realities unfurled

But we’ll take the joy, the sparkling moments that we find
The happiness between cracks, the pleasures of the mind

And in this brief interlude, oasis of the heart
Something new and green can grow, enough to make a start

And taking this I’m hoping
That one day soon we’ll find
The courage to forget we’re working and learn to savour all mankind
