And their friends are heading out

Nothing untoward, of course,

But sell it, she did try

With all of her might.

The boy, he just stared

Not a word he did peep

For he heard the girl’s words

And thought ‘Nope, mom wants me asleep.’

One mom called another

“That’s what I thought,” one did say

But they laughed as they remembered

The games they once did play.
