Childhood Games Adult Style: A Satirical Poem
As boys we would play an odd game
like who could spit closer to a line
now the game is about the same
any public figure is serving fine.
We also played hide and seek
some still hiding, others seeking
before closed eyes it's easy to sneak
so in vain is all that bitching and freaking.
Then riding those bikes was a sheer joy
zig-zagging the road from side to side
now it seems to be only others' toy
as they are taking us for a ride.
So good was game of King Arthur's Knights
played with those swords made of wood
and now we keep fighting for our rights
can't snap out of that fighting mood.
Cowboys and Indians was a special fun
that was the game just too good to drop it
so now we're playing soldier with a real gun
too bad mommy's call for dinner doesn't stop it.
