"When I Was A Child, There Was This Game We Used to Play" by Anonymous
We used to play a lot of things. We would play on the swing-set, swinging and soaring high in the air or sliding down fast. We would play hide and seek sometimes. We would play “Mother May I?”
But there was this one game that I played when I was a kid. Sometimes other kids had to play it, too, but I didn’t know that until I was older. It was a game not for little kids. It was a secret. It was a game I didn’t like to play, but I had to anyway.
Games are supposed to be fun when you are a kid. When I was a child, there was this game we used to play. It is something I cannot say. I don’t speak it. I don’t think it. But I did like hide-and-seek. I liked to hide. I was good at it. Hiding. So no one could find and seek me.
