Boys and Girls R Us
Douglas H. Mc Clintock 1934 (Sarnia, Ontario)
Pain is no respecter of persons
Pain is the great equalizer,
From babe to elder, it inflicts like a surgeon,
Makes you realize in life, you are not an actor !
As a youngster riding your bike
You must stay on to be a good rider !
You must keep it going to make it right
Having good brakes will be the decider !
I have found out that boys can be real sissies,
That girls posses an inner strength.
Boys can be awkward and never say please,
Girls are polite, pretty and keep you at arm's length !
Some boys are a momma's boy
Spoiled rotten and likes the extra cookie,
Of course all their toys bring them joy,
Girls are always serious and on duty !
But opposites do attract
Puppy love is the perfect answer,
A playful kiss they will enact,
Will the boy become a romancer !
But in the end, this will be for all of us to see
Girls are sweet like sugar and spice
And everything nice,
While boys are snips, snails and puppy dog tails !
