Tug Of War

Tug Of War

If only there was an A, B or C option

Some sort of multiple choice

Then perhaps the child might have a chance

Some sort of voice to say

Hey, this isn’t right

Why do you guys always fight

Argue about absolutely nothing

Is it getting you anywhere

I am yours, yes, both of yours

You are old enough

You both should have learned long ago

How to share

Even I understand how to play fair

And I am not even grown

So please stop, just stop

Putting me in the middle

Of this battle, your stupid game of tug of war
