WHEN KIDS

What was it?

What was it she said 

he said

they said to us?

What was it
we were asked to do 

told to do

made to do?

What was it

we wore? 

What was it 

we lied about?

What was it

they promised?

Oh, that’s right,

“Sit there 

and be quiet.

Just put on a smile.

Then fake it.

It’ll be over soon.”

Remember that?
