Lament to Torment of Childhood


Have you forgotten when you were young?

When ignorance was your primary concern.

When 'where did the rubbish man take all of his rubbish'
was all you wanted to know.

When no matter how loud you cried
your parents wouldn't get you a limited edition
Star Wars Lego Set.

You could only play with your brothers Lego.
Which he didn't want.

When you were hungry all of the time.
And tired the rest of the time.

I only ever wanted to grow old
when I was young.
I'm still a child
I just look older.
