No you may not / Yes you may

no you may not yes you may

As a girl, she liked to play
“No you may not / Yes you may”

Games of manners and politeness,
Games of self-control and rightness

Seem too tight now that she’s older;
Growing in her mind, and bolder –

Now a new game is her thrill:
“No, you may not -”
“Yes, I will.”
