Once Little Boys

Regina Puckett

Plastic toy soldiers all lined up

A stare-down battle close-up

Pretend bullets fly through the air

A child’s games without a care

Until those children grow into men

And those pretend games begin again

But this time the guns and bullets are real

And those once little boys shoot to kill
