Ping Pong Poets
Hey, look at meleaning over to one side, for a moment or two I thought I should hide away from curious eyes yet no disguise or pretence can hide the reality in place and as others turn their backs, I meet the challenges I face Hey, look at me feet shuffling floor toes curl in shoes as I stumble and fall and I wonder if I were to call for help, would you see me then, or turn your back – avert your eyes, pretend I’m not there I’ll still be here I’m going nowhere
