Keeping On The Wheels

Keeping On The Wheels


They sit in a circle tiny children held in big laps

The Wheels On The Bus Go Round and Round

sing the mothers and perhaps once in a while

a father ..clutching tiny hands to clap, bouncing

knees – Grinning at one another -  some even 

happy … 

Others just trying with pounding hearts

and trembling fingertips just trying to  

keep the flippin wheels from flying off

Crashing, cracking the wall standing

Between song and sanity
