EXTINCT OF CHILDHOOD


childhood is matching out
My generation is not watching out
The genesis of a blackout
In a scene that must not be cut out

Scene is a stage of life
Childhood! I am in retrospect
I wonder at the turn of events
Imagine the exit of a crucial stage

These days they recognise contraceptives
That is why I am hypertensive
Children can not comprehend comprehensively
English teacher in comprehension

A child's exposure to adulthood
Achild's experience of adulthood
Equal to taking two steps at a time
Which causes a faall of a lifetime

Abomination now normal occurences
Adult language now children songs
Their songs leave our mouth ajar
Our taboo is now their faboo

Girl raped when a toddler
Exploring, performing before teenager
Perishing before adulthood
Who is the future of tomorrow?

Bring back childhood days
Let membership be mandatory
Make Right of Participation obligatory
In togetherness we rescue childhood

Children deserve the right to choose
Heavenly endowment from Mother Nature
Allow these children to nurture
Never force them to mature

My propagation about childhood
Let childhood songs be babbling
Let their dance be jumping
Let their dressing be decent

Be free to twinkle again
Stars are permanently up
Mothers should sit and watch
That Humpty might fall again

You will soon devour an elephant
With a lifetime ahead of you
Your year of Yahooze by the corner
No hurry in life, time for everything

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
