For The Girls


Back in the day
Summertime
Before breast, PMS and broken hearts ruled
Ponytails, halter tops and short-shorts
Juju beads, Lemon heads, Alexander the Grapes and Sweet Tarts
Fun filled days
Freedom
Double Dutch, Hop Scotch, Marbles
Singing, Little Sally Walker
Sitting in a Saucer
Ride Sally Ride
Let your backbone slip
Down to your hips
Yes, those were the days
No worries
So naive
Before breast, PMS and broken hearts ruled
Just living day to day
Playing the games that little girls play
Sweet memories
So, so sweet
The child’s play
That womanhood has taken away.

And a wide realm of wild reality,
