Snot Running Down Our Faces

Regina Puckett


We used to cover ourselves and play in it

Made tasty mud pies with a little added spit

Never caring what soil did to our skin

We had no idea being dirty was such a sin

So here we are all grown and looking back

Wishing we could race again two-legged in a shack

Crossing our hearts and swearing we would die

If we ever made another person sad or cry

Closing our eyes and returning to play in the dirt

Running until our lungs swelled and cheerfully hurt

Laughing until we cried with snot running down our faces

Never doubting for a second we were in God’s good graces
