Boys vs. Girls
Here’s the church,
The River Thames, 346 kilometers long,
The word “Thames” comes from the Celtic “Tamesa”
Us vs. hurricane.
Although the North Sea is 68 kilometers away,
These are early days.
People who lie, do so about love.
Girls embroidering butterflies
Do astronauts still go to the moon?
Boys chasing girls around the yard
