Outgrowing The Tots
For the supreme enjoyment of fun and adult recreation, we have transformed, merged, and infused the neighborhood’s playground with a unit from Intensive Care. Play at your own risk. Insurance is not necessary. It’s not even possible! What were you thinking?
Who says we don’t play games anymore?
We peek behind closed doors, and boo the referees.
We hide from ourselves, and seek our true identity.
We still play dress-up, but only for the sake of conventions,
weddings, and funerals.
Our moods are the only things that swing regularly.
We teeter-totter between inflation and flat broke.
From liberal to conservative, we see-saw back and forth.
We let our problems slide, whilst we skate on thin ice.
The merry-go-round can still be found,
only now it’s in your local department of Health and Human Services.
It’s only a hop, skip and jump to bankruptcy!
Tag is now akin to passing the buck.
We play hopscotch between the bills and bounce checks.
Leap frog is now called the turtle trot and flop.
We spin the bottle to see who has to kiss ass this week.
Ping-pong is but a sound heard under the car’s hood.
Billiards is a billion brain cells misfiring under pressure.
We play the cards we’re dealt, and damn the dealer under our breath.
We’ll always build castles in the sand,
and forever we’ll play war in order to make peace,
as sloppily as children making mud pies.
The 24-hour playground is now “OPEN FOR BUSINESS”
Recess has been lengthened due to the recession.
Pay-per-view is optional and highly recommended!
Master Card and Visa accepted.
