Hide and seek

Game of hide and seek

Just beyond the Playground
A mystery lurks out of reach
The reality is, thunder in the streets
Equality in reason parlayed as a cause
Volleyed corrupted
Squeak of the swing set gets no attention
Potential is wasted sleeping in their seats
Family structure not in sandbox
But mayhem in the streets
Grieving loss graffiti's glaring defeat
Merry go round dizzying the answer
Sponsored by corrupt counseled cities
Hide and seek handouts in pockets
Ollie Ollie oxen free
Private no children allowed
Written on the playhouse door
Bullying the pulpits
How do we compete?
Hide the flag is a parody
Crowding the streets
Answer in the equation
Leaving politicians meet and greet
Choice is the answer
Higher not lower test scores
Red Rover Red Rover
Send Johnny over
Recess is over sit and learn
Adults show some concern
In this together no longer a game
Let's bring back the basics
Trades and skills and the like
Hope is in the children
Not in the fight
