Pass the Parcel
by  Margaret P


(Drabble: 100 words excluding title)


Pass the parcel, Hide and Seek,

Pin the Tail on the Donkey ó donít you peek.

Laughing children ó some unknown.

Lots of adults ó hear them drone.

Lots of presents ó lots of fun?

Maybe not for the little one.

His grandfatherís happy, but he looks sad.

Iím his nanny. What he needs is his dad.

I saw a tall man. He looked like Scott,

But heís left the party so maybe not.

Where is his father? Does he care?

I pray one day Scottís life heíll share.

Until then Iíll mind him and when Iím done

My dearest hope: father finds son.
