Instructions

Tell me what you want from me
All that I should do or be
Next time I am what I was.
Tell me what to do because
I do not know what is right
I’m not like you, I’m not bright.
Tell me how I shouldn’t count
Any summitting amount.
Tell me how I shouldn’t add
All the totals that I had.
Tell me how I must subtract
What is myth from what is fact.
Tell me not to multiply
Joy increasing, balls that fly.
Tell me how I must divide
Myself from what might bring pride
Because it still might bring shame,
Tell me to ignore the game.
Tell me I control the fate
Of the future, with force great,
So if we get something wrong
It’s since I followed along.
Tell me that my job is large.
Tell me that I am in charge.
I will know what to do then
Next time I’m seven again.
