The title is perfect...
The content brings back memories,...My mainstream life of living with younger children is over, do kids still play at war games?
Do kids play at anything at all, in a community way besides organized sports?
I don't see groups of ten year olds organizing their own scenarios of life through play like I experienced in early life...
We "played" at war games, yes, but that is why I am against war in my adult life....Yes, we played at cowboys and Indians, and the red devils always bit the dust...but that is why I am pagan follower today of many first nation spiritual customs...
The short lines of this poem brought long lines of thought out of my mind..
