The Boy

He’s past a hundred

That boy knows how to Keepie Up

That ball will never touch the ground again


The ripples are a hundred yards long

That boy knows how to skim a stone

That stone will never sink


If x+2=6, then x+2-2=6-2 or x=4

That boy knows his maths

He will soon count the stars


His life is a Game

A game against himself

To get his Dad’s attention


And when Daddy finally looks

The ball hits the ground

The stone sinks

And infinity is always just a heartbeat away



If only he was just a boy

And played for Fun!
