    Childhood Days

    by David Knape

    Since you've seen me
    I have changed
    my facial features
    rearranged
    another thing that's
    really strange
    I'm reverting to
    my childhood days

    Most folks can make
    their earnest claim
    they've gotten smarter
    with their age
    but me,
    I'm at another phase
    reverting to
    my childhood days

    My kin complain
    say act your age
    but I'm through acting
    at this stage
    I'm playing games
    I never played
    reverting to
    my childhood days.
