waiting at the logic gate
"Is it sporting," they ask, "in that situation?"
They want a referee to make a call.
They want boundaries
clearly marked out for all to see.
They want rules; they are binary; 
things are either right or wrong.
If they were still babies,
they would refuse to grow up; they would say,
"It's not worth learning to walk if you have to fall."
If they sit there and scream long enough,
Their God will come, feed them, soothe
them, sing them a song.

Word list: baby, boundary, situation, sporting (adj), call
