Bronze Star - 5,277 Points (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

No Depth at All


You wanna play head games,
And I ain't gonna 'trip' like that.
Shallow, insecure hide and seek...
In the hopes to attract a playmate,
Willing to compete.

These 'acts' of innocence,
Are cute to say the least.
However,
For someone your age...
This shows your have no depth at all.
Or anything worthy to find OR keep!

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
