A child loves a hug,
To be loved, to be snug
In a parent’s warm embrace
Or with their friends face to face.
Little boys they like to rumble
Little girls they like to cuddle
Teens love to just hang out
Chew the fat, lounge about.
Being home suited some
It made others want to run
But a new way of life out there
Has left sone kids feeling spare.
Social distance is confusing
Being apart, the kids are losing
Don’t play tip, nor hang out
Hugs, affection, you shall not flout.
Sit together in the class
But stay apart when on the grass
Yes, work closely on your project
No, in playgrounds we don’t connect.
For kids affection it is crucial
As much as trust and being truthful
This confusion every day,
It means the kids are not ok.
