The Sugar Cookie Crumbles Of Itinerant Day

the sugar cookie crumbles of itinerant day
delight the wandering babies still at play 
in the country of their mother's arms.

who will defend them from unwaranted harm

when the whole world is foreclosed on.
the sugar cookie crumbles and I don't know

why the only roof they have here is the sky blue sky

how long can they sustain this
when the summer birds fly

and would they could go with them

where the sun is butterscotch shining
and there are no lies
