Theme: Game

Ball

Life plays
Baseball
Handball
Basketball
Netball,
Throwball
Volleyball
Football –
With me
And says to me
Haughtily:
If you are
Clever enough,
Dodge me!

I retort back
Snootily:
Hmph!
I’m in no
Mood to play
Ball games
With you!

I’m gonna play
Pakran-Pakrai
With death.
If you can
Race against
Time, come and
Catch me ;)


(I asked my son what is Pakran-Pakrai called in UK. He said it’s called ‘it’!)
