So Much Fun (napowrimo 25)

The debate is lost
On the kids in my class
They don’t care about bullying
The insolence of trash talk
Or the sting of a well thrown ball
All they know is the fun
Of going Matrix
As a stinger flies by
Then giving a verbal jab
To the thrower of the miss
They understand the strategy of ganging up
On the last kid
Or the one who always gets them out


They love it
Sweat pouring off of them
Which rarely happens when we work out
With other sports or games
I asked if the game was too violent
Too insensitive
And if it should be banned

They dodged the questions
With a sarcastic laugh
And lined up for the next round
Ready to move
Ready to take risks
Ready to accept the consequences

Ready to have fun
