The Boy Castaways

The Boy Castaways

“A score of Acts
had to be left out”
—J. M. Barrie
“A Dedication,”
Peter Pan

Pretty soon you—
Became Number One
Amongst the Lost Boys

From a century ago—
Writing my play for
For pleasure and profit

I crease my brows—
Trying vainly now to
Remember back then

The Boy Castaways—
Desperately trying to
Keep you young forever
