Upstream Willy





The young Clingers clung
to their wagons and dolls.
They clung to their yo-yos,
their bats and their balls.

The old Clingers clung
to their hats, coats and socks.
They clung to their beds,
and their couches and clocks.
But the things which all clung
tightest to were their rocks.
