2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 20

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Let’s (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write your poem. Example titles might include: “Let’s Fly a Kite,” “Let’s Party,” “Let’s Forget About That Last Poem I Wrote That Was a  Little Too Personal,” etc.

"Let's Pretend"

Let's pretend, 
that just for a moment,
the minute they cross the stage,
they learned something sage
during their years of rage
and that parents on the outside,
parented their kids
clapped down the lids
on illegal activity and dribbling
and grounded and raised them,
so I didn't have to "save them"
and the later be blamed,
for their lack of education.
