Do You Want Me to Paint What I See?

Our kids are embarrassed, they’re angry, we’re not listening!! They pull on our sleeve but we tell them we are too busy, they need to understand we have been all day working. So we let them take days of school and we join them marching, we say that David Attenborough is our hero and let Greta do all the heavy lifting. And elsewhere important people meet in board rooms and agree on tomorrow, but we keep quiet about that and don’t tell the children. So painters keep painting landscapes beautiful and full of emotion, but we edit out the rubbish when no one is looking.
