The Children of a Lesser god


Preschool

Children laugh as they play together

They don’t care what color you are

Parents haven’t yet taught them this

At what point are we going too far?

Gradeschool

Circle of children ball in hand

The dodge-ball hurts as the skin is bruised

The target for kids

Who at this age are amused

Middle school

Competition is keen

For the adolescent youth

Sport, intellect or artistry

They seek to validate themselves by proof

High school

The social factor

Rules much of the day

The need to belong

Leads many astray

The family unit

The most influential thing

What do we teach our children?

What do you bring?

The children of a lesser god

For whom do they play?

Children of the lesser man

We teach them what we say!
