Times Are A-Changing

Form: Capped Sonnet

When I was young us kids went out to play
Nothing to fear except straying too far
From home or missing out on our dinner
Because we couldn’t hear our mothers call
Out making mischief but causing no harm
Just kids playing games in make believe worlds
Now times have changed and it’s all fake news
No one wants to believe it could be true
A virus has left us too scared to breathe
And kids are no longer safe on the street
Since the adults can’t behave like they should
Kids learning its okay to hurt for thrills
People have forgotten the caring touch
In just a few years things have changed too much
