If Kids Had A Say?


If kids hay a say
Would you care
Or pretend not to hear
Maybe look away

Would you stare in amaze
Listen with intent
Even if we didn't say what we meant
Or not even meet our gaze

I long for a way to let kids have a say
It might be a voting poll
Or as simple as changing a rule
Today could be that day

So get up & out of your chair
Get it all off your chest
Then pause to take a breath
Even if all you gets a glare

Yet in stead we're told not to talk
Do what we're told
And if not we get a scold
Plus, we don't get to move or walk

But yet I still long for a way to let kids have a say
It might be a voting poll
Or as simple as changing a rule
Todays not that day, I'm sad to say

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
