NO VIDEO GAMES

Spit balls and pea shooters 
Skate keys and chalk
Let’s go to the park
Let’s take a walk.

Stick ball and baseball
Cardboard airplanes
Tree forts and horseshoes 
Crayons and games.

Hide and Go Seek
Races and bikes
Rope swings and gliders
Whatever you’d like.

Run like the wind
Skip all the way home
Play in the backyard
With friends or alone.

No laptops …. no cell phones
No video games
It was so simple
Wish things …. never changed.
