The pitter-patter of the rain

Now dancing on my windowpane

Reminds me of that long ago

Forgotten game of tell and show.

Oh what great fun we all had then

I do not think that I was ten

We lived our lives from day to day

Simplicity that was our way.

Depression had not loosed its grip

Our world much like a sinking ship

The war had not yet reached our shore

Though it was gnawing at the door.

And when it came none was prepared

For most believed it wasn’t there

Like all our games of show and tell

In truth it all went straight to hell !
