Set the rules
Then pick and choose
Who gets to
Hop – skip – run – leap – jump
kick things off.

One to fire
5 to race
Fastest pace
Leaves 4 to chase
Then 3 do battle
First keeps jumping
Rockets soaring
Boys a sliding
One on one.
Won by one.

Now lonely loser, prize delivered
Rules amended
Rockets are mended
1 is injured
Ego un-dented he soldiers on
…Guile unaffected.

Lads like jack
Cubs in a pack
Adults & kids toys
they say boys will be.
