What am I?


The left one said good morning
The right one said good night
The top one thinks you’re wrong
Whilst the bottom knows you’re right

They seems to know one thing
And guess at many others
They keep a careful watch on us
Mum, dad, sister and brother

As distant as the furthest stars
As close as the skin that binds us
Sophisticated as a limousine
And reliable as a public bus

If they were never in existence
Life would be barren and pointless
No one should ever be without them
They create and elevate stress

They can appear as individuals
Or magnetise into a varied group
Keeping your head on straight
Or sending it through a loop

In every story you’ve ever heard
Been there since the start
What makes the universe spin around
And turns a life into a work of art
