At any party, you stay away from the Rubix cuber.
As welcome there as Gareth and his tuba.
A series of perfect squares,
designed by one man,
for a population of imperfect squares,
who grew too old for the Flumps and Bagpuss.
but still too young for the stylised,
pornographic violence of videogames,
for that would come with the realisation that life
is never as simple, easy, or clean as a Rubix cube.
