When I was young

When I was young, very young
I had no words
I just saw pictures
Mostly faces, covered in sweat
Sticky hands, pawing me
Old ladies to be kissed
The smell of mothballs
Me passed around
Me, starting to cry
More pawing, peering
And me peeing
Faces turning red, purple
Angry frowns, sneering lips
Voices raised
A thick ear
Sent to bed
