a child's play
hank

i get criticized, and asked;
 1
'do you think this is a game?'
 2
and i must admit that yeah, i do
 3
i look at life, and see a short little game
 4
not one without inconveniences
 5
and not one without temporary, scary,
 6
bothersome moments
 7
but one existing in vast fields of color
 8
to wondrously and confusedly gaze upon
 9
one to not take seriously enough to know
 10
or to know not and smile sensitively
 11
i look at this game of life
 12
astounded that my accusers
 13
don't see the chutes and ladders in it
