The Let- Down

How to explain

To a little child

And say sorry

For not being there

When it mattered most

“But you promised”

She rehearsed

Of how she’ll scream

When before her presence

You stand

“Oh dear, oh dear”

You mutter

As you dash across the hall

Going against the crowd

But it’s too late

As she stands alone

In the Centre

Of an empty stage
