"When we grow up things will be much better with our world, Goosey. Cruelty and unnecessary pain will be things of the past and all human life will be afforded respect and consideration.
The old person will both live and die in their home once more with family around to puff up their pillow and their pride and to ask their advice. The young boy and girl will have new role models upon which to fashion themselves; their fathers and mothers. The newly wed will face their differences with a determination to resolve the problem together instead of drifting apart after the first experience of marital waves and choppy water.
Children who fall and graze their knee in playful pursuit will be healed by the magic rub of parental love and reassurance instead of the promise of some new outing and Big Mac treat. We will have a better world where dogs no longer chase cats, cats refuse to chase mice or parrots need to repeat themselves each time they speak because their owners rarely listen and attend to their needs.
Oh.....and you might even get to like Christmas once more, Goosie, once you cease to be the main seasonal attraction! I can't wait to grow up. Until then, let's play hide and seek. Goosie, Goosie Gander, where shall I wander........." William Forde: April 13th, 2015.
