Ignoring Good Examples

While you were playing childish games,
She was trying to teach you life lessons.
Like how to fold clothes the proper way
and how to shake a ladys hand.
What colors belonged beside one another
And what numbers were divisible by three.
She counted by two’s, five’s, nine’s, ten’s.
You used your feet, your hands.
Every digit a counter, fingers and toes.
She was a mystery and you wound up
being the story everyone knows.
