THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “To Catch a Fish” by Eloise Greenfield: wish, fish, hook, concentrate, appetite, tell, how, spot, works, whole, better, catch

Let us tell you what we wish for
Concentrate and listen
We want to be whole to the core
Better when we have won
Catch a fish in a hook that works
How to spot something like fireworks
Catch a fish
Catch a fish
Our appetites work like clockworks

Let us tell you what we wish for
Equality for all
Doesn’t matter what we all wore
Whether we’re short or tall
We’ve come a long way to be fair
Got to be treated just and square
We’ve come a long way
We’ve come a long way
We’ve done things and be anywhere

Let us tell you what we wish for
Swim in the sea, be free
Climb the mountain, walk in the moor
Ski and climb up a tree
Ride a horse, drive a racing car
Dance and sing and reach for a star
Ride a horse
Ride a horse
Be ourselves and stay as we are*
