Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 760 (Taking A Break From The Golden Rule)

It was the last day, of school-

A vacation, away, from that golden rule.

.

The children heard that school bell ring-

And, suddenly they were off to their vacation thing.

.

The little red schoolhouse was suddenly-

My goodness, it was downright empty.

.

For the children were off, to the land, of fun-

Aside, from the home chores that had to be done.

.

It was 1900, and the new century had just begun-

The favorite activity, at this time, was to just set out

and run.

.

To run fast and as far as one could-

To be out of sight, there in the wood.

.

To come across that favorite spring-

To swim and take care of the fishing thing.

.

To fulfill that ultimate wish-

To bring home at least 3 huge fish.

.

The summers were long, and the children

savored it at best-

To climb trees, to hunt for berries, to

get plenty, of rest.

.

The time would come again, to pay attention

to that golden rule-

But, for right now, the children were going

to enjoy every moment, of the summer,

out of school.

.

It was the last day of school-

A vacation away, from that golden rule.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 844 (To Pass Go)

To spend hours playing Monopoly-

Yes, that is the way, it used to be.

.

To be the banker was a lot of fun-

Doling out the money, was a job well done.

.

Always liked to be the little doggie, to make

my mark-

After rolling the dice, although, he did not bark.

.

To pass go, and collect that two hundred-

Sometimes broke, trying to get ahead.

.

One could always relax-

When they missed a spot, that involved

a tax.

.

For no one wanted to pay-

We wanted to collect, we wanted things

to go our way.

.

One good reward-

Was that get out of jail free card.

.

For as one made the round-

Finding oneself, in jail, could easily be found.

.

The game would be going great-

When one had their hands on the best real estate.

.

A hotel on Boardwalk and Park Place-

Heightened one’s chances, to win at a faster pace.

.

But, then again, the other ones could serve one well-

If one of the other players, landed on them, for a spell.

.

The game was not usually won real fast-

The ups and downs, would make the game last.

.

To finish up, and know that it wouldn’t be too long-

We’d be back, with another game going strong.

To spend hours playing Monopoly-

Yes,  that is the way, it used to be.
