>I am not so whimsy writer’s island #22 whimsy

>Pretty girls with pink ribbons and curls
Grow up to be women
Tough little boys with army truck toys
Grow up to be men
Puppies say please, while scratching their fleas
Grow up to be dogs
Play ring around the rosey, it’s a pocket full of posey
Hopscotch in the park, hide ‘n’ seek in the dark
At the edge of the yellowbrick road, tell me do you see a toad
If you do, give him a kiss
