   It was a child's game - biking through

yesterday's puddles in an '80s version

of a ten-speed.

It was a child's game - spraying one

another with imaginary disinfectant

after a boy touched you.

It was a child's game - slapping hands

and reciting annoying jingles you

learned from friends.

It was a child's game I played today

But it was not one I entirely regretted

For sometimes the past needs to repeat


And we must act like harmless fools we

once were.
