Assumptions (9)

A chance to go to the carnival,
To dangle up in air —
To see the lights, and ride the rides
At a distant traveling fair.

A chance to smash into other folks,
And to be jostled about:
To dress a little, smile a lot,
And to generally turn out —

They had to be here, and so they came.
It’s worth the wait, the drive:
For few there are still who would miss the chance
To really feel


(Assumption – “Kids would rather just play on their phones these days.“)
