Heaven gave us tiddleywinks
we flip them back and forth but we don't know
where they go.

Sometimes we can sort of direct the tiddleywinks
and think they may do something

Sometimes they land on a bug
wheather a ladybug - then it's murder
or a cockaroach - then it's polluted.

Sometimes we have to follow th tiddleywinks
into the next room
maybe its the bathroom where little boys go every day
or the kitchen where the cats must play
or the bedroom, silent with sleepers today.

Tiddleywinks are fun
if you can loosen up and see what they do
If you just worry about the next hop
the game will be quite blue.

Next installment:
"Through the eyes of a paperclip"
