Neubooterdammerung, 5: Finola Scott

Party Time

Oh they are excited
best clothes  faces scrubbed  
laughing  squealing foot
tapping to the merry tune
round and round and round
and     they run   one ear on
the rhythm  listening leaning to
catch  a warning of silence
before others    round and
then   shove quick   me mine
jostles   those on chairs  giggle at
foot stomping sulks  it’s not fair
you’re out   the music re-starts
sourer  frowns back biting  threats
scowls    the side-liners  prance glance
open mouths   wag tongues nod
do you want to be in our gang?
