looking at me
into my nose
What’s that? ,with a pat on my new zit
” Don’t worry mommy, you be fine in a bit.”
Time for tea just as I reckon
set in motion hysterics that deafen
How could you, how could you mommy?
bite into a cookie and keep it fromm-e?
You shouldn’t , you mustn’t ,it’s only propriety
now CARRY me ,ease my anxiety.
bring me juice in a glass with a straw
hurry mommy, no more of this hee -and- haw
Where are my shoes? find my shoes
No, not you daddy, it’s mommy I choose
MOMMY. ONLY MOMMY.
look at me .look into my eyes
says he with a bossy guidance
throws away my book and pretends it to be good ri-d-dance.
Makes a pout-y face, “uh! ridiculous”
a nice touch, just a bit pretentious.
he is an upheaval, a strong force in the universe
the eruption of deep feelings into silly verse
” I need a hug”
” A big hug” says he
from my mommy
and then he calls me “pooh baby!”
