It's impossible really to know
The mystery of Tic-tac-toe
A whole lot of empty boxes
With the hint of an un-played game
The zeros and crosses rule the day
Ain't That such a shame?
What if no one had to win?
And no winning line were to cross,
cut through the figures,
Making the entire picture so gross?
What if we could draw
Some silly stuff ...in there?
a frog- a candle- a clock
just anything............... anywhere
But then the tic tac toe-
wouldn't quite be itself you know-
The zeros and the crosses are very much here to stay
Without them I guess,
we'll be quite unsure of our way.
