Childrens’ drawings

You know how children tend to draw a human?

Just a bit off but still with some acumen.

Torsoless forms with arms on the head,

When normally they’re on the trunk instead.

Objectively it’s wrong and missing one part,

(Much like some of postmodern art)

But from their viewpoint it’s just on the nose,

Just like the crucial body part list goes:

Face is the best, with the mouth and the eyes,

Source of kisses and good advice.

Then come the hands that hug and stroke,

Strong enough to lift me up into an oak.

Feet come last, the one that play much,

Kicking me the ball and swinging and such.

If it’s not on the list, then it won’t be drawn.

This makes sense when you’re still in your dawn.
