Did you know that
the classic yellow plastic bat is no longer used for pinatas?
Nowadays it's the titanium club
that is the weapon of choice.
One, two, three whacks
is all it takes
before a waterfall of junk food
floods the ground
and little painted hands and feet go scrambling.
Most children will automatically hit the ground
in search of treasure
It's the independent thinker
who questions the source.
Instead of down, they look up.
So always remember,
there are no rules.
Sometimes it's not slow and steady
that wins the race.
Sometimes it's about quick reflexes.
And an opened bag.
