Kids Stuff

Kids Stuff

 

Children will believe anything

 

In talking animals

And moons made of cheese

Fairy castles

With shinning knights

And magic doors

Secret gardens

Dwarves and Trolls

Evil kings and Evil Queens

Snow White dreams

Arabian Princesses

Warlocks and Witches

 

Yes children will believe in anything

 

Mermaids and cities beneath the sea

Great monsters

Unicorns and Dragons

Kids are so easily lied to

And led astray

The advertising of the latest craze

The fried slop burger meal

That taste so great

The necessity of cardboard box crunchy

Mass produced

Plastic child

Of Pokermon desirability

 

Yup kids will believe in anything

 

The mulching gargling abuse of an industry

Little consumer-ites

Hooked on the sweet and salty

The cartoon world

Of their resale-ability

Video games of make up

Fashion they need to be

In the general acceptance

Of peer pressure conformity

 

Children will believe anything

 

In plastic knives

And rubber weapons

In invincible soldiers

And righteous wars

The marketable idioms

Sell them violence

Convince them they have already grown

Play their games

On the fad gadget mobile phone

 

Little innocent targets

To blackmail parents with

Into parting with their hard earned cash

Give in

Stop the tantrums and the tears

Happy little children

See how we feed them

See what we teach them

About adults

 

Yup! Kids will believe anything

 

In star reaching swings

And daisy chains

 

In the realistic rattle of toy machine guns

 

In the great and grand promise of heaven

 

In a designer label

 

In the miniature worlds of Lilliputians

 

In what ever is fed to their imagination

 

With the chocolate goo flavoured ketchup sauce

 

Of this crude ever pleasing entertain me culture

 

Yup! Children will believe anything

 

Amazing

 

What we teach them about adults
