We say we’re ‘looking forwards’
to some special kind of day.
But with two eyes always facing front
forwards is the only way.
To look back we must turn around
and needs must stop a while,
before we end up tripping,
and landing on our smile.
If we had eyes behind our heads,
We’d not know where we’re going,
But only some place where we’d been
would be the one that’s showing.
We’d never catch up with ourselves
and life would be a bore,
because we’d never recognise
some place we’d been before.
