growing up

my parents kept their ear to the ground
they got in on the ground floor of every child-raising fad
we were child-rearing ground zero
mom and dad changing the ground rules in our home
making me grind my teeth and go to ground
or get grounded, like an airplane
i could never hold my ground; they would grind me down
i had an ax to grind

now, moved out, free at last, i can break new ground
grind away, enjoy a groundswell of new experience
and ground myself
versus the daily grind
by drinking coffee (the daily grind) (previously forbidden)
and do a bump and grind of glee
