Backugan Vs Frontal-Go!
McDonald’s hands out some crazy toys
Named Bakugan rolling birds.
I asked why not Frontal- Go boys,
But they heard not a single word!
Why not teach our kids how to save?
A stamp with every Happy Meal?
Or college savings bond certificate,
Or an after graduation pair of wheels!
The crap that is forced on our children,
That is supposed to occupy their minds,
When it’s time to get their homework done,
McDonald’s toys fail every single time!
If you think I make too much of a small thing,
Then thank you sir, you’ve proved my point!
What’s more important than the future
Of our children?
It’s time all parents start to lend their voice!
