Boys will be Boys

Boys will be boys
always use that excuse
boys will be boys
and the girls always lose.

So what do you think
should be done to those boys?
How will they learn
from right and from wrong?
Saying that girls are bad
and they deserve what they had
is just as bad as YOU taking that pic
spreading it around just makes me sick.

Boys will be boys
is not an excuse
boys will be boys
and the girls always lose.

Spreading it around is called
child pornography
did you know that at all
when ya’ll took that photography?

Boys will be boys
stop using that excuse
boys will be boys
and the girls always lose.

We have to teach all our kids
how to be decent, respectful people!
all that sexting you just can’t get rid
of it … spreading like a constant ripple.

Boys will be boys
don’t use that excuse
boys will be boys
and the girls always lose.

Children playing with grown-up toys
knowing not how to ever play nice.
Naïve girls trusting these boys
oblivious to intentions and  their vice.

Boys will be boys
it’s just not an excuse
boys will be boys
and the girls always lose.

Parents take time to teach your kid
boy or girl, from right and wrong
no excuse is good enough to rid
the long term damage will be strong.

Boys will be boys
but they should know better
boys will become men
and will soon be a father.
How would dad feel
if this happened to his daughter?

Boys will be boys
you can’t use that excuse
boys will be boys
and the girls always lose.

Wake up adults and parents too
help these boys and girls mature
teach them all the right thing to do
so they`ll always be reassured,
rather than be guarded and circumspect
safeguard their dignity and self-respect.

Boys will be boys
is no longer an excuse
stop playing with toys
prompting girls to lose.

Sexting, texting to make them a fool
is a dangerous game and so very cruel;
boys, girls, stand firm together
to stop this repulsive and gross behaviour.

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin http://cheryllynnroberts.wordpress.com I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. http://stigmahursteveryone.wordpress.com Namaste!
