He was the kind to prioritize
His own affairs.
Often he was defended…
By a mother who pretended,
He was just away on ‘leave’
And will return when that purpose ended!
But those in his care,
Felt he was the one not aware.
He was not there…
And that is all they knew!
Unless he was a magician?
And ‘that’ he wasn’t around,
To deny or prove!
He wasn’t absent!
He was just not there.
To watch,
Or to lay…
A footprint down on the ground!
