the anna doll, the elsa doll
lie abandoned, arms outstretched
tidied away in the toy box
(how fairy tales end)

tidied away the children too
no longer seen, or heard
cease-fire for the grown-ups
cleansed at watershed.

settle down for daily drugs
entertainment of the masses
remains of the day (rat-race banquet)
erase all traces of the damage
