It’s not true that children have impractical, silly dreams.
They want dogs, swingsets, breakfast for dinner
They want to be ballerinas and dentists
They want birthday parties and Disneyland
They want 100 friends
It’s the grownups who have the most curious, fantastical ambitions.
They want billions of followers, luxury goods
They want to run around dressed as vikings
and break other people’s things
They want complete freedom of Twitter speech
They want to own people
They want to rule
What say we stop harping on kids to strive for more-
their dreams are big enough.
