Get Rid Of The Advertisements

The Way It Was
 


When I was a kid, we would sit around,
bonfires roasting marshmallows on a stick,
and tell scary tales: imagination found.

We’d devise tomorrow’s I dare you-games,
Like playing ding ding dash on old Mr. Ross,
We’d ring his bell, he’d shout and call us names.

Many days we’d roller skate down the street,
Clicking a stick along picket fences,
Neighbours watched, their porches a front row seat.

As a kid these were games I loved to play,
Though some were mischievous, we did no harm,
Life was simple, or so it seems that way.

The “good old days” of joviality
Today is not the same, nor are the games
Modern day kids call them triviality.
