The Things That Change And Those That Don't

The things that change: 
I have two adult cousins now 
I still remember Ella's thirteenth birthday
Oranges
We pretended they were smiles

Going to her house was a "Shack Attack" 
Because they were the Shackletons 
And I remember Ella Saying people asked 
If she was related to Ernest Shackleton 
I had to google that to find out his first name
I only ever knew Shackleton as the Shacks 
So much has changed in five years
Ella is no-longer a kid
I'm not really a kid either
The Shacks moved house
We moved country
Our lives grew up
But we're still cousin's 
No-one asks about Ernest Shackleton 
Anymore
Teenagers these days probably haven't heard of him
So they don't question it

And some things don't change: 
Ella was born a grown up
As they said of Dora in Anne of Green Gables 

Ella's still friends with cody
I can't believe the kid 
Who broke his arm on a swing
Now has a pretty girlfriend, Summer
But they're still friends
And Ella is still my cousin
Who still fidgets when we mention Maddi

Those two really didn't 
Like each-other
They were so bloody different 
But we still mention Maddi
All the bloody time
Some things never change.
