Fool's Game
by Bernie McCann
Bookmark and Share
  What was wonderful in the past
burns brighter now
than future promise
I believe it was a fool's game

Throw in your charm, young ladies
and along comes a man
adventuresome, passionate, in love with the world
but it was a fool's game

A gamble you were
all cat eyes and tight-lipped mysterious smiles
leading me, leading me
where only I knew the way

And yet for all those powerful thrusts
gripping flesh, pulling hair, pressing lips
nothing remains
it was a fool's game

Because the old gets into the young
bones fail, bodies retreat
and now I am small against the streets
where once my walk was a dance,
and in dreams I flew far and away and down the lane.

It was a fool's game.
