How fast a smile can disappear
Trace a backwards course from ear to ear
Eyes cast downwards the lament begins
Played on the worlds smallest violin
Tread softly lest eggshells be crushed
Or over the edge you’ll be pushed
Spiralling silently into the void
At the very least you must be annoyed
Where did that pesky smile go?
Don’t ask us cos we don’t know
You may never find it wherever you land
So make a new one – draw up a plan!
