Goodbye To Jack Rocks

Most all little girls and even some boys

Enjoyed playing Jack Rocks along with their toys

On the floor, a porch or sidewalk they were seated

Each player longing to be undefeated

During school recess and even the park

Jax would be played until it was dark

As time moved on into changing decades

Children's love for Jack Rocks has faded

Computers games, laptops, tablets, Iphones

Cause children today to prefer being alone

If only I had one more chance

To play Jack Rocks and take a stance

Returning to my childhood days

When it was fun to run and play

I've searched the Internet high and low

I've disappointed in every store where I go

Can't find Jax Rocks anywhere

I guess today no one really cares
