childhood games 

Skylar Blankenship

Walking down the street

Waste lands we call concrete

Young Miss Mary Mack

Crying from a tack

Her mother from a crack


Cinderella dressed in yellow

Two hair ribbons so mellow

Found downstairs

Far more fair

Than who play solitaire


Red Rover, Red Rover

Why is Dad pulled over

It was only lemonade

He had just gotten paid

Right there in the shade


Come take a seat

Someone is here to meet

His name is Jack

Let me help you pack

Will I be coming back
