FREE CEE nursery crimes

there once was a time of simple pleasures
like hop-scotch, marbles and electric trains
hop-scotch turnd into scotch on the rocks
when i got drunk enough to realize what adulthood ordains

childhood led to my becoming a hood
i held a lot of adoration for adolescence
my youth was an era of hopes and dreams
and faith formed of fact was at its essence

stealing kisses in the kitchen became blatant thievery
i played spin the bottle until i spun out of control
jumping rope landed me at the end of my rope
and sin seeped deep into my soul

I recall when nursery rhymes first became rhetoric
And when reality dashed the dreams to which I once clung
Now, at sixty four, I have only one regret
And that is the fact that I didn’t die young

    Words of praise fail, and I'm not often at a loss for words. I'm awestruck by this piece. You hop from analogy to analogy with ease and that needs doing. Another masterpiece for my fave list, bruv.

    I like the changing of the rhymes into crimes. The ending just leaves me awestruck! Some intense ink poet!
