on days i hate being indoors

Dannie don't stay indoors.
The clouds are calling
you out to play. 
The flowers and the leaves and 
the wind that teases them -
they need a foursome. 
Dannie, don't stay cooped up
inside those 6 walls. 
The roof and the ceiling 
count as well, silly.
They're walls in your topsy turvy universe. 
Oh my spirit keeps running out
through the crack in the window 
Only to be yanked back 
leashed to my spoilsport body 
that signs registers and 
subjects itself to 8-9 hour exiles.
In what they call the real world.
