We Shall Overcome

Hand in hand
Is how we used to sing
The ‘hand In hand’ verse of
We Shall Overcome
Under the artificial stars
Generated by the battery powered turtle night light
In blue
Always blue
We would join our hands
For the whole verse
After which he would continue to hold my hand
While he asked whether this was indeed what hand in hand meant
He still asks the same question
Yesterday he asked
After he took my hand back in his
After having dripped it
In order to make a diamond shape
With both of his hands
Today he just asked
We’ll still sing the song
But maybe we’ll go with the
I am not afraid verse
