    It was an ordinary day
    Until someone split the tea
    Now the dolls are fighting,
    While little tears are being shed

    So "who dunnit?" was asked
    We all cast suspicious glances
    And begin to blame the youngest
    Who could barely even talk

    We just sit there and quarrel
    Till we were causing a loud ruckus
    And found ourselves in separate corners
    With a small pout on our faces

    "Who dunnit?" was asked once more
    But none would admit to the crime
    So I guess we'll never know...
    Ah well... let's have some tea.

      Tea party? and I wasn't invited??
    This is a lovely poem.. reminds me of my young-girl days. And I don't know why but it also reminds me of "Alice in Wonderland". And has the echo of the phrase "don't cry over spilt milk"...and a "who dunnit"...all wrapped up in one.
    Very nice!

      You know the only suggestion I have for this delightful little poem is to change the position of the ellipses in the last line to:

    Ah well . . . let's have some tea.

    And keep them as they are in the preceeding line, or even go with a long dash to show a break in thought.

    I liked the image/metaphor you began with. It was great. A dolly tea party! haha!

    Splendid!

      You know, at a certain glance, it does appear simple. But, really… you were able to bring in to light the innocence of being a child. The ability to brush aside things grown ups can’t and the innocuous way of going through life with a single digit age.

    I have a few issues with this piece though…

    It is a bit messy.

    “And found ourselves is separate corners” I think should be… “And found ourselves in separate corners”

    and

    “But noone would admit to the crime” should be “But none would admit to the crime.”

    Other than that… it was an amiable read.

    Thanks.

      A simple little didy that I like. I think that some spelling edits and some coherance in time and sapce would imrove the piece. Yet even with its simplicity, I feel like it could delve into more the idea of childish longing, and that of adult blame.
    Just some thoughts...
