Distraction Personified

The silence won't survive.

Distraction is a little boy,

In the chaos he does thrive.

Screaming, squealing, running wild,

The silence won't survive.

Racing through the tidy house,

Accelerating through the hall.

Calmness is his enemy,

To which he'll never fall.

In the moments of insanity,

Oh, the mother shakes her head.

Now what did she need from the kitchen again....
