"Pool Rules" by Rayana
There was an old grumpy guy at the pool
Who scolded me for bringing in my inflatable toy
And the noodles and boogie board that brings me such joy
Because he says it is against the rule.
I was surprised by what he said and I thought, "how can that be?"
I go to this pool all the time to have fun with my friends
And always see other kids playing with latest pool toy trends
So I think that mean old man is just lying to me.
Then I look at the sign and it is pool rule number three
The rule says "No floaties, boards, toys or rings allowed in the pool,"
But who would ever decide to write such a rule?
I should stand up for all the kids and say "We disagree!"
To show respect, my friends and I leave our toys along the wall,
But as soon as the old man leaves the pool, we grab our toys, dive in and have a ball!
