Poems - Only children should play war
Should children play war?
When did or how did grownup learn war?
Is playing war healthy for children?
Does playing war as children create a cock on the block;
that other children look up to?
How should parents view there children playing war;
when there backs are turned
one child comes running crying?
Is playing war the first baby step in learning dominance?
I am sure questions could go on and on.
Is playing war playing survival of the fittest?
Isn't it sad that only children should play war games when playing war games has led us all to the brink; of the end game?
Play leads to; for real.
BWP... This poem really made me think about what media teaches our children and what we allow them to play.
I agree with you on the subject of parents being more aware of what games their children play. Certainly with the introduction of games consoles kids are still playing war as they always did but now they do it sitting on their butts in front of a screen over working their fingers instead of being out in the fresh air interacting with other children. I have seen some of these video games and a lot of them are pretty damn graphic and a lot of parents don’t take heed to the age restrictions on the packaging
I think a great deal of people don’t give a hoot what their kids play. I mean there’s even a series of games called “Grand theft auto” Where you go around stealing cars and shooting people. Jeez what is the world coming too? It’s no wonder society is on a down hill spiral.
Thank you for the comment on the piece James
If kids watch war movies then they want to emulate the heroes, and kids don't make those movies. I just like to see kids excercising and as long as nobody gets hurt and they come home safe and sound then all is well. Like you wrote, its a pity war wasn't just a kids game.
Thank you Wayne
