Get Serious

mudpies072008

Don’t play
or laugh
be serious
forget mudpies
make believe
Grow up!

Ah, but maybe
the children have it right
make mudpies
not war
ring-around-the-rosey
hand clapping
jump rope
not hate, prejudice
strangers

Just singing in the rain
dancing in moonlight
and playing in the sandbox

Don’t get serious
get silly.
