Admonishions--Poem

"Grow up! Act your age!"

                  Society always tells us.

                             But most people

                                      who follow that road,

Forget how to play

               "get down" and party,

                                   and have wild and rowdy fun.

I've seen too many

               "grown-up" crabby old biddies,

And I know I

               never want to be one.

Excuse me,

               I think I'll decline,

                               and remain as an adolescent child...

And go play

              with people

                              half my age!
