 Many years ago,

in decent times

before the War,

Sarah & Daniel

were playing

hide-and-seek.

 

They got so involved

that Daniel lost his Teddy

and Sarah - her doll.

 

Two years after the game,

the toys

were all that remained.

 

Their parent’s corpses

were dolls

in big tanks

of hands & legs,

corpuses and heads,

buckets of golden teeth

and pillows

of hair.
