where have all the children gone

this is a park, is it not

it is a sunny sunday evening

and i sit here all alone

is it the atmosphere that drives them away

or perhaps themanipulation of today's media

stay indoors, watch TV, play video games

kinesthesia is a plague to all

the slow creak of the swings is all that speaks

without even the comfort of children's laughter

it pains me to see such discrepancies

this park grows weak with despair

there is a gentle wind

it is almost soothing to know there is still presence in this emptiness

but still i wonder

where have all the children gone
