Children of Flint

Lovable, Goofy, loud, dependent
Lover of toys, their family, and having fun
Who needs support, good health, and a clean place to bathe
Who gives their parents love, the world hope, and reason
to keep the community clean
Who fears losing their parents, being sick, and being unsafe
Who would like to enjoy life, enjoy playtime with friends, 
and have no worries
Who will someday have to deal with the problems from others, fix problems from the past, and lead others for the future
