    King Me Please

    You sank my battleship

    Tag you're it

    Ring around the roses


    All the lingo of child's play
    But no more games as of today
    For when I became a woman I put childish things away
    But I guess you didn't get the memo about the new way
    You emerge yourself into circular game play
    And wonder why you are still stuck in yesterday
    Time to grow up and put that ish away

    Silly rabbit haven't you heard tricks are for kids
    Time to stop hopscotching and step off the grid
    Man up and get you marbles together
    For in life there will be rain along with fair weather
    I triple dog dare you to cross the line
    And dust the crumbs of yesterday off your behind
    And step up to the plate and get on the grind

    Since game is all you seem to know, I declare checkmate
    Mark your calendar, for you're going to remember this date
    This is the day that all games come to a conclusion
    I am choosing to opt out of this dizzy optical illusion
    I am walking away from this crazy wrestling match
    Realizing that you and I are now a gross mismatch
    So long my friend, This is the end, GAME OVER!!!

    asimplepoet,

    Well...somebody is in trouble, I don't know whether to give thanks for that or what, but it is nice prose, which clicks. Will you explain more to me asimplepoet or is that permissible?

    @Bro Clyde. As the year comes to a close there are some friends that I had to let go of because I realize that they and I are no longer on the same level. I wish them the best but I am choosing to opt out of the games they play. Does that help?

    Yes it does, and that's it in a nutshell, so to speak, asimplepoet. And those ones will be hardpressed to carry on without you. I do feel bad for them and their lost.
